For those of you whose municipality has enacted a sign regulation ordinance outside of the zoning ordinance, a couple of questions if I may:
What is the reasoning behind the separation?
Does the "land use" aspect of your sign ordinance conflict with your state's zoning enabling legislation?
How are appeals handled?
How are site plan approvals handled: because site plan review only checks compliance with zoning, at what stage is signage proposals for a development requiring site plan review looked at and by whom?
