Rapid City Will Settle Lawsuit With Outdoor Epic Advertising

On June 19th, the city will settle the lawsuit brought against it by Outdoor Epic Advertising in 2012, reports KOTA News.

The lawsuit was one of two brought after the city passed three ordinances, changing the municipal code concerning billboards, in 2012. The lawsuit with Lamar was settled last March, and an agreement has been reached over Epic's lawsuit as well. The Rapid City Council is agreeing to do away with the need for a conditional use permit when working on existing billboards, and will modify the sign ordinance to allow larger, higher billboards along the interstate. In exchange, Epic will agree to stop running full motion videos on their digital billboards, and dismiss the lawsuit.
