SUBJECT:
DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION REGARDING EXTENSION OF THE TEMPORARY USE OF A-FRAMES, NON-PROFIT SIGNS AND OUTDOOR DISPLAYS UNTIL FEBRUARY 2, 2015 (Council Communication updated on 1/13/14 at 4:00 pm)
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends the temporary use of A-frames, non-profit signs and outdoor displays be extended for two years until February 1, 2016, due to the economy continuing to recover. The two year extension shows commitment to the business community and allows them to feel confident in their investment to pay for temporary signage.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
The Oro Valley Zoning Code Revised (OVZCR) does not permit outdoor displays or A-frames; however, on September 21, 2011, Council approved the temporary use of outdoor displays and A-frames for Oro Valley businesses. On February 1, 2012, Council expanded the temporary use of A-frame signs to include non-profit organizations. As part of the temporary relief, certain fees and administrative reviews are waived and the only requirement is a permit for tracking purposes. These temporary sign relief measures are scheduled to expire February 3, 2014.
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
Since Council approved the temporary use of A-frames, non-profit signs and outdoor displays, the following permits have been received:

A-frames: 52 businesses
Non-profit: 1 businesses
Outdoor displays: 21 businesses

Fees and administrative reviews have been waived for outdoor display and non-profit A-frame permits. A one-time $50 fee is charged for users of A-frame signs and an over-the-counter (or walk-in) review is completed prior to permit issuance.
FISCAL IMPACT:
The Town currently collects a one time $50 permit fee for A-frames and waives the permit fee for outdoor displays and non-profit A-frames.
SUGGESTED MOTION:
I MOVE to (approve or deny) extending the temporary use of A-frame signs, non-profit signs and outdoor displays until February 2, 2015; or

I MOVE to (approve or deny) extending the temporary use of A-frame signs, non-profit signs and outdoor displays until February 1, 2016.
