Virtual Community Meeting - Proposed Zoning Ordinance Amendments - Outdoor Advertising Signs
Tuesday, June 14, 2022
The Planning Department will hold a virtual community meeting on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. regarding proposed code amendments to section 19.1 – 279.D of the zoning ordinance (PDF).
Section 19.1 – 279.D provides that outdoor advertising signs be modernized and improved through standards which enhance the overall attractiveness of signage in the county. This section includes a termination date of July 24, 2023, for the replacement or modernization of outdoor advertising signs located along Routes 1, 10, 60 and 360. Any sign modernized, or new sign installed in compliance with this section, shall be considered legally conforming.
Many county businesses have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and would face additional financial hardship if forced to modernize or replace signs by the current termination date. As such, Planning is proposing an amendment to extend the termination date for replacement or modernization of signs to July 24, 2028.
Join the virtual community meeting. If you have any questions, please contact Drew Noxon via email or by calling 804-748-1086.
