The Future of Billboards

St. Petersburg is working on a deal with two major billboard companies to take down 100 old signs in the city and replace them with 10 new digital ones. In Tampa, city officials are finalizing an agreement with the companies to end years of lawsuits over the number and placement of billboards, and the City Council will start work on a policy for digital boards next month. This week, we look at the issue of billboards in the Bay area, digital and otherwise.
