Santa Fe New Mexican - - LOCAL & REGION -

ALAM­OGORDO — Alam­ogordo City Com­mis­sion­ers ap­proved a six-month ban on con­struct­ing new bill­boards.

The Alam­ogordo Daily News re­ported the res­o­lu­tion, which was ap­proved Tues­day, is the lat­est de­vel­op­ment in the city’s at­tempt to ad­dress res­i­dents’ con­cerns about new bill­boards.

An or­di­nance was brought be­fore com­mis­sion on Aug. 22, stat­ing the build­ing of the new bill­boards would be un­law­ful and bill­boards al­ready in place would have five years to be re­moved. The item was tabled af­ter Lind­mark and La­mar of­fi­cials said their com­pa­nies were pro­tected by fed­eral and state statutes. City Plan­ner Dar­ron Wil­liams said the ban would al­low city staff and the com­mis­sion enough time to work on the is­sue.
