The Kalamazoo Gazette tweeted an article about this website and our process. We retweeted the article, posted it on the Plan Kalamazoo Facebook page, and are now linking it here. It’s a new media tornado!
Want some background? Here is a live chat that city staff did with Mlive.com, regarding digital billboards and the (at the time) proposed moratorium:
Billboards. They can get a lot of attention…. they’re designed to get a lot of attention. And they are getting a lot of attention in Kalamazoo right now. You may have heard that the City Commission issued a moratorium on new digital billboards at the end of January. They asked staff to look at the issue of digital billboards and come back with recommendations for changes to our zoning ordinance. So, that’s what we’re doing. Over the next few months, we are going to be working with people who care (on all sides of the issue) to look at specific issues related to digital billboards and come up with ideas on the best way to interact with billboards in Kalamazoo. We’re just getting started. We’re hoping to end up in the best spot for our whole community.
