Fast forward to 2015, and it happened again. A local billboard company suddenly started building a huge digital billboard on a pocket of unincorporated property in Homewood. This time, local residents erupted and have been unrelenting in pushing their local and state officials to stop it. The kind of law we weren't able to get passed in 2006 would have prevented this, but it's not too late for the county. We will be working to amend the ordinance to protect the people of the county against the infestation and intrusion of digital billboards (and any other kind).
From our files, this was the proposal in 2006. It would be a good start for 2015.
