Los Angeles City Council: Take Down the Illegal Digital Billboards Now!

The time is now to right the wrongs of the past, and to take our city back!

The settlement agreement between the Los Angeles City Council and CBS Outdoor & Clear Channel Outdoor led to the city's landscape being littered with over 100 digital billboards, none of which were allowed under our City's own laws.

After almost 6 years of litigation, the Court of Appeal has finally ruled that the agreement was illegal and that the permits for those illegal billboards must be revoked.

At the same time, Councilmembers Krekorian and Alarcon, at the urging of CBS and Clear Channel and their lobbyists, have passed motions that purport to circumvent the Court of Appeal ruling and to whitewash and preserve these illegal digital billboards instead of have them taken down.

The illegal settlement agreement was a stain on our Council, a harm to our residents and neighborhoods, and an insult to the rule of law. Now is the time for the City Council to have these illegal billboards taken down - not to preserve them.
