Kalamazoo City Commission to consider moratorium on digital billboards

Lead in text: 
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.
