Sign Code Modernization
On Tuesday, September 25th, City Council voted to allow signage, including digital signs, to be placed on 17 City-owned sites in downtown and near the airport. I voted in favor of the staff recommendations. Phase 2 will look at the possibility of expanding the signage to privately owned sites in downtown and along freeways and grand boulevards, not neighborhoods. One of the goals of phase 2 will be to get old billboards out of residential areas. I live in a neighborhood that has them, and some are an eyesore. I'm not looking to replicate that in other neighborhoods and would like to get the existing ones cleaned up. I look forward to the continued community discussion on this issue.
