A Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce memo chambermemo reveals that its Local Government Committee and Executive Committee "enthusiastically and unanimously" recommend that the Chamber board endorse an proposed amendment to Durham's Unified Development Ordinance that would allow electronic billboards in the city and county.
The Downtown Durham, Inc. board is scheduled to vote on the proposed amendment tomorrow morning. DDI is not required to announce the results of the vote, but executive director Bill Kalkhof told the Indy earlier this week that he is considering it because of the public interest in the issue.
The amendment would have to jump through several governmental hoops in order to pass, including Durham County Commission and Durham City Council.
