City Council to Decide on Allowing Billboards @ Tonight’s Meeting

402-insideBillboards? In Culver City? It’s on the agenda as an action item at the city council meeting tonight, November 10, 2014. The idea came up several months ago to create a corridor of signage for “commercial frontage” adjacent to the the 405 freeway, and  it’s already been vetted by the city staff.

As per the agenda for this meeting,Receive a presentation and discuss the Carlyle Group’s proposed “Hospitality & Entertainment District Specific Plan” (which includes a sign district component), and direct the City Manager as deemed appropriate;  (If desired) Approve an agreement with the Carlyle Group for reimbursement of City costs relating to the review and processing of the Proposed Project; Authorize the City Attorney to review/prepare the necessary documents; and Authorize the City Manager to execute such documents on behalf of the City”

Do you think Culver City should have billboards? They’ve been against the rules since they were first invented, so why change the rules now?

If you feel strongly, nothing persuades the council more than a whole lot of people showing up to speak on the item. While a crowd of voters does not always turn the tide, empty chairs have never prevented the agenda going forward.
