    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.

    Santa Clarita American Legion Veteran Group Names New Leaders

    American Legion Post 507, a Santa Clarita-based organization supporting veterans of foreign wars, named a new commander Thursday. Jeanine “Tootsie” Imperial was named the new commander, and former SCV Man of the Year Greg Nutter will remain first vice commander, according to J.D. Kennedy, who led the local chapter of the nation’s largest wartime-service veterans organization for the last two years. “We’re chartered by Congress to help veterans get benefits,” Kennedy said. “We do that in many different ways -- we file the paperwork, assist veterans with access to their federal and state benefits -- but Post 507 has also worked with local businesses, the city, and other organizations to better serve veterans with any immediate needs they may have.”

    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.
