CITY OF PEORIA TO HOLD COMMUNITY MEETINGS CONCERNING ELECTRONIC BILLBOARDS
City looks for public input and discussion to gauge interest of citizens.
PEORIA, Ariz. (August 9, 2012) – The city of Peoria will be hosting six community policy discussions gauging community interest in permitting Electronic Billboards within the city. Residents are encouraged to attend one of the meetings to learn more about and provide their opinion regarding the potential benefits, appropriateness, and impacts of electronic billboard signage along select city roadways.
The city believes the digital billboards will be a benefit to local businesses and residents. Digital billboards can be used to advertise local businesses and community events, communicating emergencies to the public and, add vibrancy to the community in special areas such as the Peoria Eighty three
'P-83' Entertainment District (Peoria Sports Complex area). In addition, advertising on the signs can be a substantial revenue stream for the city which can be applied to economic development projects. Currently, there are no specific development projects for which the digital billboards are being considered.
It is anticipated that several Peoria City Council members will attend these meetings.
