HONOLULU (AP) - Large campaign signs plastered across Honolulu could be banned if a proposal before the City Council is enacted.
The measure would prohibit political signs larger than 8 square feet - 2 feet by 4 feet - from being posted on residential property within 120 days before an election.
Councilman Ikaika Anderson is introducing the resolution so that candidates are on more of a level playing field, sign costs are reduced and the city's homes don't look like political billboards.
The Outdoor Circle, an environmental group best known for keeping Hawaii free of billboards, has pushed for years to restrict campaign signs.
Anderson said he will hold a public hearing on the measure next month in the City Council's Zoning Committee, which he chairs.
