Thursday, the Lubbock City Council voted against an appeal, which would have allowed a billboard in West Lubbock.

People lined up at City Hall Thursday to take part in the public hearing about this billboard proposed at the Marsha Sharp Freeway and Milwaukee Avenue. 

Mike Freyburger was asking the City to overturn the Planning and Zoning Commission's decision, which denied the billboard going up.  The City Council supported Planning and Zoning's decision.

Freyburger said two of the reasons for the commissions decision were safety and the comprehensive land use plan.  The land use plan explains how along an interstate highway district, which includes the Marsha Sharp, there are guidelines that say a billboard is not permitted.

Freyburger said the land he is asking for a billboard to go up is very narrow, and there's few other uses for the land.

He also brought up the sign on Raider Park, across the street from the Jones AT&T Stadium. A city employee explained that the sign on that building is not considered a billboard as it is on-site advertisement since the company who has the ad has an office in the building.
