City Sign Code Update & Public Hearing: April 3, 2017
The City is considering a number of potential revisions to the Sign Code, and we will be holding a public hearing on April 3, 2017 in front of the Planning Commission for their recommendation to the City Council, which will consider the code on April 11, 2017. There was an open-house on the proposed revisions this past November, and we made a number of revisions based on the feedback at that meeting. Additional updates were made after a review with the Planning Commission on February 13th. We want to encourage all business representatives and interested people to review the proposed changes prior to the Public Hearing.
Key elements of the proposed changes include:
- Enabling Electronic Message Center Signs
- Enabling A-Frame, feather, and inflatable signs
- Revised standards for banners
- Updated code format
The City’s sign code specifies the when, where, how, and style of all signs in the City. The intent of the code update is to make the sign code current with best practices, and easier for business owners and developers to follow and understand. We are happy to meet with business representatives prior to the Public Hearing to specifically review how the changes may affect their business. Please call or email Greg at 503-489-6854 or GregD@ci.Wood-Village.or.us to make an appointment.
