Here are the 1400 signature petitions scanned and attached to the Tacoma City Council packet against digital billboards now available for viewing (will these Tacoman's voices be heard?):

Doug Schaefer took the city of Tacoma to the mat with his comment. Too bad the council wouldn't allow him a little more than 3 minutes. Obviously he's the foremost authority on the legality of Tacoma's billboard ordinance.

If the city council does anything to weaken our billboard ordinance or accept the Clear Channel settlement offer then the citizens should start a referendum to overturn such a decision. The city is really sailing into uncharted waters with it's apparent refusal to support the citizens and the city planning commission.

With Schafer's commentary, it shows that the issue of digital billboards is primary a public policy issue, not a legal one.
