Presentation, Discussion and Possible Direction to Staff Regarding Modification to the Sign Code to Promote a Professional and Vibrant Community - Steve Boyle, Community Development Director
A review of the sign code was requested at the December 20, 2021 Council meeting by Council Member Stander and seconded by Council Member Band. The sign code is attached. Since this is in the Zoning Code, in order to make changes, this will require a public hearing before the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Town Council. The initial question was regarding A-Frame signs and that section is below:
