Some digital signs will be allowed in Kansas City, Missouri residential neighborhoods under an ordinance passed Thursday.
The battle went on for nearly two years, according to ordinance sponsor Councilman Ed Ford. Churches and schools said the new signs were modern, convenient and efficient. Homeowners worried that they could be glaring, garish and constantly changing.
Ford said the compromise ordinance allows the signs at institutions with 15-acre sights (10 acres on busy thoroughfares).
