    UPDATE: Santa Clarita Officials Receive Signatures For Billboard Referendum

    The opposition to a Santa Clarita-Metro deal to bring three large, two-sided electronic billboards next to Interstate 5 and Highway 14 and take down 118 smaller ones throughout the city claims it has what it needed Friday -- a whole lot of signatures. A Facebook post Friday by Citizens Against Billboard Blight read: “WE WON AND HAVE THE NUMBERS.” On Sunday, the group reported in a news release to have 18,000 signatures in support of their referendum, which seeked to halt a billboard deal proposed by Metro. A billboard lobbying group and Santa Clarita residents opposed to the city’s agreement with Metro and subcontractor Allvision -- to create billboards and more than $100 million in advertising revenue next to Interstate 5 and Highway 14 -- began a referendum April 3 to try and stop the deal. The deadline passes Monday, May 5, 30 days after the time the petition was certified by the Santa Clarita City Clerk’s Office.
