Scenic Philadelphia Fights the City’s Want of Billboards
By Randy LoBasso
Everyone needs a cause, including those against…billboards. They’re called Scenic Philadelphia and they’re suing the city of Philadelphia for a deal the city made with four billboard companies in 2006.
The city agreement, with CBS Outdoor, Steen, Clear Channel and Keystone, takes away legal rights from residents and community groups who want to get rid of billboards, the suit says.
The suit seeks to void the agreement and require that billboard companies comply with existing regulations.
