Public Comment Sought on Regulation of Billboards and Digital Signs in Yakima

The City of Yakima Planning Commission will hold a public workshop today at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Yakima City Hall to gather public input on billboard and digital sign regulations.

The purpose of the workshop is to gather public comment on how billboards and digital signs may affect community character and to determine an appropriate level of regulation.

The City currently has two moratoriums in place that prohibit the installation of new billboards and digital signs while regulations are being reviewed.

Recommendations from the Planning Commission will be forwarded to the Yakima City Council early next year.  The Council is expected to hold public hearings concerning billboard and digital sign regulations before taking action on the regulations.
