Electronic Signs Lead To Suburban Opposition
Colorfully lit signs, some animated like stadium scoreboards, are popping up all over Columbus and even out into the suburbs. Many feel that these signs should remain in the city.
"Paul Freedman, Columbusâ€™ program coordinator for code development, said the cityâ€™s code isnâ€™t as strong as it should be."
" 'Technology has changed," Freedman said. 'Iâ€™m always in favor of updating the code.' "
"He said the trick is drawing up citywide regulations that donâ€™t interfere with plans to jazz up Downtown with electronic billboards and donâ€™t create loopholes."
