Document Description
Outfront Media (the applicant) proposes to construct a triple-sided digital light-emitting diode (LED) billboard at the intersection of Artesia Boulevard and Firestone Boulevard in the City. The proposed billboard would be a triangular design with north- and south-facing displays that would be visible to vehicles traveling in both directions (northbound and southbound) on I-5, as well as an east-facing display that would be visible to vehicles traveling westbound on Artesia Boulevard. The north and south-facing displays would each have a 14-foot-tall by 48-foot-wide face. The east-facing display would have a 10.5-foot-tall by 36-foot-wide face. The north-facing display would have a 13-foot-wide by 14-foot-tall, perforated metal screen sheet. The proposed billboard structure would be 65 feet in height. Each billboard would be elevated on a base and supported by an aluminum pole at the center of the structure and an upright frame. The base would have a stone panel system applied with a deep, natural gray finish. The upper 4-foot-tall accent would be brushed aluminum. The words “Buena Park” and “Auto Center” would be illuminated in three rows near the top section of the pole, with channel raised letters having blue acrylic faces with 1-inch silver trim cap edges and 5-inch-deep black returns with white internal LED illumination. The reveals within the pole will also be illuminated, in addition to uplighting of the base. The proposed project would require a new underground electrical utility connection; Southern California Edison (SCE) would provide electricity to the project site.
