Local persuades commission to allow digital billboard

0
A local businessman has obtained approval from a city commission to construct a 300-square-foot digital billboard on property he owns at 2415 N. Main St. City staff opposed his request because he intends to use the sign to advertise for businesses and organizations not located on the property. Staff say the new sign would violate current city codes because it would be within 1,000 feet of another off-premise sign, a large billboard. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)

A local businessman who wants to place a large electronic billboard on a piece of property he owns has received the approval of a City of Roswell commission, although city staff have said his plans run counter to current regulations.
