So here's what they did: they just created a new code making it so the crosses can stay, but this will be it for long-drawn out political protests. Earlier there were tight codes about what you can and cannot do on a hillside mainly as a way of protecting the hillside. It was these codes that most of the argument over the crosses was centered around. Now, they'll just make it so nobody can put more than four signs on a hill so this won't happen again, mainly because 100 crosses > four signs. It also means the crosses can stay up for now as the crosses are grandfathered in and because it was deemed the crosses do not violate any city code.
There will be another meeting on April 19 to discuss all this further.
