On May 5th, Houston City Council voted to install seventy-five 8-foot-tall interactive digital kiosks on Houston sidewalks. While not in use, the kiosks will be scrolling commercial advertising messages, which have been banned in Houston for more than 40 years. Scenic Houston is undoubtedly disappointed with this outcome, but we are gratified for the dialogue this issue generated around the use of our public spaces and digital advertising.

Thanks to the more than 1600 letters generated in opposition to digital kiosks; Scenic Houston has to ask what’s next? With a digital billboard wave sweeping across the country, we are curious how Houstonians feel about full-size digital billboards. Do you think digital billboards are a good idea or will these huge, TVs-on-a-stick add to Houston’s already disheveled signage landscape? Let us know how you feel about the prospect of digital advertising in Houston by taking our survey below.
