Lights out for billboard idea in Texarkana
By Ty Wilson
A local businessman pulls the plug on his own idea. Chad Shipp owns Shipp Outdoor which owns and operates digital billboards. He was hoping to put up a two sided digital billboard on Richmond Road just north of Interstate 30. Recently, the Texarkana Texas Planning and Zoning Commission shot down the billboard idea. Before city council was to make a final vote Shipp removed his request.
