EXPLANATION:                     Due to recent and evolving federal court rulings in relation to signage and the First Amendment, the legal department has proposed changes to the sign code to ensure the sign code complies with those rulings. Article 7, Ordinance No. 2018-08, was reviewed and approved by Council on October 9, 2018. The proposed ordinance relates only to the section governing signage.

 

At the October 10, 2019 Planning, Zoning and Adjustment Board meeting, the PZAB unanimously approved (4-0) the revisions to the proposed sign code.  Council will review the proposed changes on November 12, 2019 on first reading. If approved, the revisions will be incorporated into the final approval and second reading of the LDR.
