    Santa Clarita Releases Billboard Ballot Measure For November

    Santa Clarita officials released a copy of the ballot measure for a controversial deal with Metro and Allvision regarding billboard construction and removal in the Santa Clarita Valley. After months of public outreach by the city in support of the deal, and outcry from residents opposed to the deal, the question facing registered voters at the polls Nov. 4 will read: “Shall Ordinance 14-02 adopting a development agreement with (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertising structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to the Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?” Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar was appointed to draft the argument in favor of the measure, which will appear on the ballot.

    Santa Clarita Referendum On Metro-Allvision Billboard Deal Faces Deadline

    With a May 5 deadline approaching for a referendum regarding a controversial partnership between Santa Clarita and Metro for electronic billboards, the activity around signature-gathering seems to have intensified. Santa Clarita City Council voted 3-1 back in March to OK a plan bringing three large, two-sided electronic billboards next to the freeway in exchange for taking down 118 billboard faces throughout the city on land for which Metro has a right of way. A group of residents opposed to the plan and a lobbying group decrying the deal and its terms, began a referendum April 3 in an effort to try and stop the proposal before Metro is planned to vote on it in May. A referendum has 30 days to gather signatures, and because May 3 falls on a Saturday, signatures will be accepted until Monday, officials said.
