Pittsburgh City Council voted to approve a 6 month moratorium on the erection and/or approval of all billboards, advertising signs, electronic, LED or signs in general in all zoning districts. Council wants the opportunity to create and implement a policy that will be effective city wide. All nine council members voted in favor of the moratorium. Members of council wanted to make sure that there is a sound policy to use in the future, and not have signs replaced or approved without their knowledge, or against the law.
