Dickinson Hesitates To Add Digital Billboards

Posted: Updated:

With all this new business comes the need for new advertising, but Dickinson city officials are still hesitant to introduce digital billboards into the city.

The Planning and Zoning Commission continued to discuss changing the city's sign code today.

The commissioners agreed to give their suggestions to community development director Ed Courton, and have him create the code before their April meeting.
Commissioners say this code will be in place for a long time, so they want to make sure they get it right.

"If there's no benefit to the city, and yet it's an annoyance possibly, we shouldn't do it. It's real simple. And that's everything we do on Zoning and Planning Commission. If there's no benefit for us, for the city of Dickinson, or enhancing our way of life, why do it?" says Planning and Zoning chairman Earl Abrahamson.

Courton will be taking into account sign codes in other cities across the state, as well as input from sign and advertising companies. The Planning and Zoning Commission will make a decision in April.
