Fountain Valley To Consider The Digital Sign Tonight

NOT INTERESTED IN COSTA MESA DEVELOPMENT?
In case you think you'll be bored with the discussion of the General Plan amendments and other development-related items on the agenda of the Costa Mesa City Council meeting tonight, I have an alternative for you.

DIGITAL MESSAGE SIGN
The City of Fountain Valley, our good neighbor to the West, also holds their City Council meeting tonight, Tuesday, October 6, 2015 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in their City Council Chambers.  You can read the agenda for that meeting HERE.  Very near the top, beginning on page 13 through page 625 (!) is the item more than a few apprehensive Costa Mesa residents are concerned about - the 79 foot tall digital message board being planned for a spot along the I-405 Freeway at the very Eastern edge of that city.  The problem with that message board is that it will spill obnoxious levels of light into homes near Moon Park in Costa Mesa.  Here's what that sign will theoretically look like.

LIGHT SPILLAGE
And, this graphic, plucked from the staff report, shows the theoretical light spillage numbers as presented by one of the consultants on this project. (CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE)
VISIT OUR NEIGHBORS TO EXPRESS YOUR VIEW
So, if you're going to be impacted by this sign, you may wish to trot on over to the Fountain Valley City Hall and use the three minutes provided to express your views.  This item appears to be scheduled early in the meeting, but one never knows how long it will take.

Under the Brown Act the FV City Counsel cannot make you say where you live. I'm not saying that you should lie but...

I'm Kim Constantine. First of all, everyone is welcome to attend and speak at the meeting -- no matter where you live. Additionally, the sign specs changed quite some time ago. It's now proposed for a 65' height.
