As proposed, the draft ordinance would not alter the citywide cap of 99 total billboards, but it suggests that a maximum of eight digital billboards be allowed in the city. As proposed, digital billboards would only be allowed in districts zoned general or light manufacturing, community commercial or downtown in the central business district along state-or federally controlled roads.

Kalamazoo City Commission to consider moratorium on digital billboards

City Commission meets on Tuesday, and will consider request from city staff
A six-month moratorium on "internally illuminated off-premises signs" would allow Kalamazoo city staff to study LED billboards and recommend changes to the city's zoning ordinance that address size, brightness, "sequencing of changing copy" and where those signs should be located, City Planner Andrea Augustine said in a memo to city commissioners.
