The Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects has sent a letter to the L.A. City Planning Commission supporting a moratorium on allowing more digital billboards. The AIA letter also calls for a moratorium on approving any new sign districts, such as those proposed for Koreatown, the South Park area of downtown, and elsewhere. “Now is the time to develop new ordinances that both reflect community values and beautify Los Angeles to the benefit of all who are attracted to live, work and visit here,” the letter says. The Los Angeles chapter of the AIA, representing professional architects, is the second largest in the country.
