Judge Blocks Digital Billboards in City

A Knox County Chancery Court judge has ruled a Louisiana-based company cannot convert its traditional vinyl billboard for digital advertising within Knoxville's city limits. Chancellor Daryl R. Fansler's ruling, made Sept. 29, sides with the city of Knoxville and continues to block Lamar Advertising Co. from converting two billboards along Interstate 40 near the intersections of Papermill Drive and Cedar Bluff Road. The case has roots dating back to 2001 when Knoxville City Council banned the construction of any new billboard and also passed subsequent zoning changes to regulate other types of electronic signs. The effort by Lamar to convert the signs in 2006 forced the city to successfully file an injunction to block the conversion and also drew objection from local residents.
