The new sandwich board sign ordinance amendments made it through a first reading at City Council on May 3, 2010. The second reading will come before City Council for a vote on the evening of Monday, May 17th that would make these signs legal for use again on the downtown sidewalks.
In anticipation, Susan Pollay, Executive Director DDA, has scheduled a meeting on Tuesday, May 11th at 8am at the DDA office (150 S. Fifth Avenue, 3rd floor) so that Wendy Rampson from the City can provide an overview about the new ordinance language, and answer any questions.
Also, please make a note that there is a public hearing associated with this sandwich sign ordinance on the night of May 17th at City Council, and your voice on this topic is important. You don’t need to sign up for this public hearing, but you should be at City Hall no later than 7:30pm that evening if you want to participate.
