SIMI VALLEY – Hoping to clear up clutter and eliminate blight, city officials are proposing a sign ordinance that would prohibit displays in public rights of way, including ads for political candidates.Signs promoting politicians in the county Board of Supervisors race, community events and businesses are clumped in groups visible all over town.“It’s an inexpensive way to advertise, but at the expense of residents,” Simi Valley City Councilwoman Barbra Williamson said. “We were noticing 50 signs on one (small) piece of property … Enough is enough.”Neighboring cities Thousand Oaks and Moorpark don’t allow signs to be placed in the public right of way, Simi Valley City Attorney David Hirsch said. Simi Valley would allow temporary signs to be placed on private property only with the permission of the owner.
