Tacoma Billboard Proposal – Public Hearing
City Council is considering a billboard proposal touted to resolve the on-going fight to remove billboards from the city or at least substantially reduce them.
This proposal billed as a ‘compromise’, does neither and is quite a capitulation to the billboard company. Historic Tacoma has long supported the removal of billboards from most of the city.

City Council is holding a public hearing on the proposal at its 11/14/17 meeting starting at 5 pm at the Municipal Bldg.(747 Market). View the Hearing Notice here: Not20171114-BillboardHearing
Please contact your city council member to make your views known or send your opinion to firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s no need to give a long argument since this is more or less a count of “for” vs. “against”.
