No Electronic Billboards on Highway 280

Interstate 280 is designated as a scenic corridor and therefore - off limits! It is one of the most beautiful transportation corridors and we would never do anything to change that.
The County of San Mateo is considering a feasibility study of potential sites for electronic billboards - and ONLY looking at areas where billboards currently exist near Highway 101.
The Board of Supervisors must still approve the contract for a feasibility study, and, if one or more sites are deemed feasible, make all decisions regarding any potential project.
Ongoing revenue from a possible electronic billboard can be used to pay the capital and ongoing operating costs of projects that benefit our community like the Devil’s Slide Trail and the addition over recent years of about 200 acres to the Parks System.
