BACKGROUND: In 1985, Council adopted an ordinance that prevented the addition of more billboards to the city. This same ordinance included the take down of two billboards to relocate one. 

In 2007, the City Council approved a one-year Digital Pilot Program, which allows 13 digital billboards within city limits under Sec. 28-54 of the Sign Code and Billboard Ordinance. No new off-premises digital signs are permitted in the City or the Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). The existing digital billboards are to be maintained in accordance with the requirements listed in the ordinance.

We need your input on a new proposal regarding billboards!

The proposal under review includes permanently removing four billboards for each digital upgrade. The removal includes one in scenic, urban, or historic corridors and permanently removing 265 "Junior" billboards (less than 100 sq. ft.). The proposal also allows digital faces to be added to the back side of only the 13 existing digital billboards. The proposal does not allow for any new digital billboard structures in the city limits.

* 1. The current code maintains the 2:1 ratio (take 2 down to put 1 up) for any billboard size. It also does not allow any new off-premise signs in San Antonio city limits. Note that the ratio with the 2008 Pilot Program was 3:1. 

After removing 265 Junior (less than 100 sq. ft.) billboards, in addition to more than 500 Junior poster sign faces, Clear Channel is proposing to remove four billboards to make existing digital billboards double-sided (a 4:1 ratio). Do you think the ratio should be:
