A proposed new sign code for Cedaredge could include provisions for the town issuing sign permits and charging permit fees.
The town planning commission on May 1 worked on revisions towards a final draft of the town's first comprehensive sign code.
Mayor Pat Means said that the project came about because of "citizen complaints" on signage at the new Dollar General store.
In addition to the provisions dealing with permits, fees, and commercial signage, the draft code includes language regulating yard sale signs, "sandwich board" signs, maximum sizes of signs, allowable placements of signs, and other issues.
The town currently has signage provisions located in various sections of its municipal code. But a new sign code would place all of them in a single section.
If adopted by the planning commission in final form, the sign code would be referred to the town board for consideration and for the establishment of any permit fees.blog comments powered by Disqus
