Agenda Title:

15UR023 - Conditional Use Permit to convert signage to an electronic message center sign


The applicant has submitted this request for a Conditional Use Permit to allow conversion of an existing billboard to a digital billboard.† Lamar Outdoor Advertising currently operates two static signs built side-by-side on the subject property north of the intersection of Cambell Street and East North Street.† They are proposing to consolidate the two existing static signs to one combination electronic message center and billboard.† The east-facing side of the sign would be converted to a 250 square foot digital message center, while the west-facing side of the sign would be a 250 square foot standard, static off-premise sign.† Submitted plans show the proposed sign will meet all requirements of the Rapid City Sign Code with the exception of spacing.† †However, due to a recent court decision, a previous ban on digital billboards which had been overturned is back in effect.† As such, due to the citizensí initiated measure, digital billboards are neither a permitted nor a conditional use in the City of Rapid City.†
