LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Bright lights? Big City?
Could LA’s downtown start to look like New York’s Times Square?
Under a new law signed Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown, there is no longer a limit on the number of huge, electronic billboards that can be put up in an area.
KCAL9’s Peter Daut spoke to people downtown who look forward to the light show and others who aren’t getting a charge out of the idea.
Right now, there are several electronic billboards in downtown. Many near LA Live. Developers hope to soon add a whole lot more.
The billboards surely grab attention.
“They draw you in definitely,” says Quincee Worrell.
“i think they’re nice. and the idea of adding more would be even nicer,” said Jeremy Padilla.
