Kansas City Digital Blight Coming Soon



The future for Kansas City is "augmented reality" and bright shining tech blight like Blade Runner but only dumber . . .

Here's a preview with little opposition at City Hall . . .

41 Action News: More digital billboards could be on horizon for Kansas City

Deets:

The ordinance (City Plan Commission) support includes a ratio of 7-to-1. They would take down seven square feet of static billboards for every one square foot gained digitally.

"There will be no new signs with this ordinance," Roxsen Koch, an attorney representing the company, said. "There will be a conversion of existing signs potentially."

Outfront said the change will allow them to cut their total number of signs from 486 to 177.

The ordinance also caps sign owners at 11 electronic displays, and the signs would not be allowed close to residential areas.

To make the same revenue as a static board the companies will have to change the "video" every 8-9 seconds. WOW, what a distraction. Who came up with this brilliant idea?

How many people say they actually read the ads while flying by at 60 mph? Waste of ad money.

Digital Billboards will probably go the way of TV ads.
A few will catch your eye as entertainment, but you'll be darned if you can remember what product they were touting. The rest won't even register.
