City of Oceanside Brings Back Electronic Billboard Debate

lamar-digital-billboardThe Oceanside City Council is considering the LA / Vegas style billboards once again. You may remember, the request for an electronic billboard at state route 78 and Rancho Del Oro was shut down last year  – this time there are two up for approval at SR 78 / Rancho Del Oro and SR 76/ Airport Rd, and Oceanside residents are  not happy.

The brightly lit, flashing, 60 ft. high (6 stories) by 30 ft. wide billboards are are proposed on city owned property and as the petition says, residents have multiple reasons to be concerned:

  • Distractions to drivers – traffic and accidents on the 78 and 76 are already a strain and a danger to drivers
  • Effects on the surrounding homes and environment
  • Opening the doors for more – once billboards are approved, more are likely to follow
  • Blight in the City of Oceanside – billboards only add a cheap and cluttered look to our seaside community

Community members are circulating the petition below and you can help keep those tacky billboards out of Oceanside.
Please email the city council today!
Council@ci.oceanside.ca.us
Be sure to Include your Name and Street Address (to verify residency) and the Subject: NO Electronic Billboards!
Send the petition below or write your own personal email.

To read more on the subject follow the link to the Union Tribune or Coast News articles.

Live for Logan Push for Oceanside Traffic Calming

12238058_1488376128134969_2651851870146226202_oThe Friends of Live for Logan are pushing forward on traffic calming measures in Oceanside.  The Pilot Traffic Calming Program is on the agenda for Wednesday, January 20 at 6:00 pm.

The group says the program will make it safe for bikes and pedestrians to cross between North and South Oceanside by adding a buffered bike lane and a mid-block crossing, as well as reducing and slowing traffic.  This is a temporary solution until  the process for permanent improvements is completed.

Read on to see how you can support the program:

IF YOU WANT SAFE PASSAGE, PLEASE

1. SIGN THE PETITION:

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/support-safe-passage-for-bikes-on-coast-hwy.html

2. COME TO THE MEETING: Oceanside City Hall Wednesday, 1/20/16 at 6pm

You don’t have to speak.  Your presence alone is very important.  We anticipate opposition to the bike lane and the cross walk.  It is important for City Council to see that many Oceanside residents, parents and business owners support safe passage.

If you have questions about the Pilot Program, check out the Q&A below.

THANK YOU!
