Sign Ordinance

Enact a sign ordinance that regulates the size, height, placement, materials and design of signs throughout the community or in selected districts of the community. Sign regulation is important, because excessive or inappropriate signage can seriously detract from the aesthetic appeal of the community and create a bad first impression for visitors to the community. On the other hand, requiring compatible and consistent signage can be very effective in promoting the community's identity, history and culture.
