GDOT has approved the Billboard application filed by Action Outdoor, for an 80 Foot LED Double sided Billboard.
The Super-Structure is expected to have a pole as wide as 54 inches to hold up the approximate 20,000 pounds. It is to be positioned parallel to the high transmissions lines along Medlock Bridge Rd.
It will be in view of homes in St Ives Country Club and upscale restaurants nearby such as Stoney River, Trattoria 141 & Viande Rouge. Even the rooftop restaurant of Twisted Taco will have a non-stop view of the GIANT Screen projecting commercial ads 24/7.
Many of you may recall GDOT Denying the application in July. They measured from the corner of the parcel. The Billboard company appealed, and requested the measurements be made from the remaining headstones.
The cemetery has a storied past, with neglect and desecration for many years.
Pamela Baughman, GDOT employee delineated the cemetery to the northeast corner of the parcel. Here is GDOT’s justification for approving the application, measuring 545 feet. State Law is 500 feet.
