The following letter will be submitted to the City of San Antonio’s Electrical Supervising Board and City Council Members. Please take the time to go down and voice your concern for the beauty of San Antonio, and River Road. The public hearing on digital billboards will be held at 1901 S. Alamo on Tuesday, September 11th and 9:30 a.m.
UPDATE: “San Antonio’s electrical supervisory board agreed Monday to recommend a city ordinance to regulate the light-emitting diode signs, or LEDs, but suggested capping permits to 10 for the first year and banning their use on older billboards that are exempt from current restrictions.” Read the SAExpress News Article Here.
