Attend the City Council Meeting and voice your opinion
The City Council will consider to follow:
5.2 DISCUSSION OF PROPOSED REVISIONS TO THE IMPERIAL BEACH SIGN CODE RELATED TO DIGITAL SIGNS (MF 1046). (0670-95) Recommendation: That the City Council provides direction to staff regarding digital signs on private/public properties and on way-finding signage. Given the advances in technology and the amount of important information the City could provide to the public, staff believes that a provision allowing digital signs on public property through review and approval by the City Council and/or discretionary permit might be appropriate. However, given the practical difficulty in regulating digital signs on private property, the potential safety concerns they present and the lack of support.
