L.A. postpones billboard regulation vote

LOS ANGELES The council will wait until City Attorney-elect /*Carmen Trutanich*/ takes office and has a chance to review the law. Trutanich will be sworn in July 1; the vote has been rescheduled for September.

The billboard ordinance would have restricted digital billboards in all but a few specially designated "sign districts," which could include portions of Encino, Westwood, Koreatown, and downtown Los Angeles.

The digital displays first began appearing three years, following a legal settlement between the city of Los Angeles and sign company /*Word Wide Rush*/. The council received complaints from some residents about the new signs going up in their neighborhoods, which led to the ordinance creating sign districts.

A temporary ban on new billboards and digital signs will remain in effect until the council takes up the matter again in September.
