Kalamazoo City Commission OK's digital billboards

Lead in text: 
The new rules would allow as many as seven large digital signs in the city, including two in the downtown area.

Commissioners added restrictions that will require billboards to be located 2,500 feet apart, therefore allowing seven sites for static billboards to be converted to digital billboards.
