Temporary Signs – new policy

Mr. Lipari summarized the subcommittee meeting held this morning with the chamber noting that for a year the land use office will allow release of temporary sign permits/banners for a period not to exceed 90 days in one calendar year, that a permit process was established, and although the policy will require fees, for this year only, those fees would be exempt.  He reviewed how it would work, and indicated that it is an attempt to try and help our local businesses during these difficult economic times.  The Board agreed it would be helpful.  Mr. Lewis asked if this allowed off-premise signs.  Mrs. White indicated only warehouses are allowed off premise signs and this is a separate permit process.  It is not permitted under this policy, but she would add wording to make sure it was clear it is not permitted under this policy.  Mrs. White indicated that the signs would have to be professional and not hand-painted or made in such a way it would be blight to the corridors in the community.  Mr. Lipari noted that this would be a year only at which time we would look at this issue again to see it’s affect on the community and local businesses.
