Digital Billboard Signs in Ottawa – What should be allowed?

The sign industry would like to introduce digital technology in billboard signage to better manage advertising material and to increase the frequency for changing advertising messages.

For the opportunity to experience this technology and to gauge public reaction, City Council has approved a pilot project to install a digital billboard sign at the following three locations:
• St. Laurent Boulevard at Tremblay Road
• Carling Avenue at Kirkwood Avenue
• Carp Road, east of Highway 417

To have your say, read the discussion paper, view a photo and video clip and complete the questionnaire posted on ottawa.ca under Public Consultation.  If you prefer, call 3-1-1 or pick up an information package at one of the City Client Service Centres.

The city will review comments and reflect them in the report that will be considered by the Planning Committee.
