Eagan Wary About Flashy Billboards

The Eagan City Council is worried about the future impact new digital billboards will have on drivers.

The council has put a halt to the installation of new light-up billboards that can change images every few seconds in order to "further study the issue," according to MNSun newspapers. http://www.mnsun.com/articles/2007/01/29/news/ea25council.txt

Apparently, the council is concerned that the flashing billboards will distract drivers too much, or turn the suburb into a Las Vegas doppelganger.

The moratorium only lasts until July 31, but councilmembers have the power to end it sooner or extend it as they see fit.
