city lynchburg logoLynchburg’s planning department is considering launching a new “cap and replace” which could alter the future placements of billboards across the city. The proposal is one on a list of items that officials are considering when updated zoning. The News & Advance reports, the measure would cap the total number of billboards in the city, and have those in residential districts and parts of downtown taken down and moved to other commercial districts. According to the article, the city has about 90 billboards which are currently allowed in industrial districts only. About 25 or so other “nonconforming” signs are in residential areas and in downtown.
