DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION REGARDING EXTENSION OF THE TEMPORARY USE OF A-FRAME SIGNS AND OUTDOOR DISPLAYS UNTIL FEBRUARY 6, 2017
Staff recommends the temporary use of A-frame signs and outdoor displays be extended for one year until February 6, 2017, while the economy continues to recover and staff works with the business community for an alternative or permanent solution.
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. As part of the temporary relief, certain fees and administrative reviews are waived and the only requirement is a permit for tracking purposes. On January 15, 2014, Council approved a two-year extension which is set to expire on February 1, 2016.
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
Since Council approved the temporary use of A-frame signs and outdoor displays, the following permits have been received:
A-frames: 83 businesses
Outdoor displays: 26 businesses
Fees and administrative reviews have been waived for outdoor displays. 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.
The Town currently collects a one-time $50 permit fee for A-frames and waives the permit fee for outdoor displays.
I MOVE to (approve/deny) extending the temporary use of A-frame signs and outdoor displays until February 6, 2017. During this time, staff and the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce will work with the business community for alternative or permanent solutions.
