Draft amendments regarding an update to the Signs (20.75) and Terminology (20.100) sections of Title 20 Zoning are currently available and interested party comment is being requested. These sections are being amended to comply with a US Supreme court decision requiring all sign codes across the country to be content neutral in their application. Amendments also include updating the sections to be consistent with other Municipal codes, and clarifying language. Each chapter has a red-line/strike out version (Signs, Terminology) and a “clean” version (Signs, Terminology) that can be reviewed. Comments need to be returned to Jen Gress by August 11, prior to the scheduled Planning Board hearing on August 15.
