As I understand Measure 49, it basically forbids commercial development allowed under Measure 37. I believe that includes billboards. The "vesting" route, I suppose, is a possibility there. In other words, in the event someone spent a great deal of money (relative to the total cost of a billboard), then it's possible they could basically get "grandfathered" in, under Measure 37.
Another poster wondered whether there was a map available for Measure 49 claims - I don't believe that there is. At this point, it wouldn't look all that different from a Measure 37 map (and Portland State University did track Measure 37 claims graphically), because responses are still being processed at the state Dept of Land Conservation and Development. In time, that would be an interesting map to see (maybe PSU can come through for us again?).
There was also a question about maps of potential Washington County UGB expansion areas. Metro has a map of all the "study areas" for their ongoing "urban/rural reserves" process on their website: http://www.oregonmetro.gov/index.cfm/go/by.web/id=26257
