Your Fox Hills Neighborhood Association is taking a stand against the proposed billboards in Fox Hills. The Carlyle Group wants to put up large digital and static billboards by the 405 and 90 freeway to benefit from the Silicon Beach traffic in that area. Culver City will gain a 10% profit from this ($420,000/year). Is this worth what could potentially harm our local community? Please read Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells article at http://meghansahliwells.com/ morebillboards/ to learn more about this action increasing litigation, loss of control and undermining our “Brand” as a city. For example, if Culver City Council approves the billboards, it will open up Culver City to future lawsuits because other billboard companies will want an exception to put billboards in Culver City.
