As the title says, what signage is allowed in your residential districts? What should be allowed in residential areas?
We currently allow a 6 s.f. for real estate signs and garage sale signs, but they are only allowed on the property for sale/having the sale. A request has come up that would allow these signs on corner lots (basically directional in nature). I see a whole host of issues with this, but want to compare our ordinance what what others have.
Also, do you allow home occupations to have signage. Our ordinance does not, and they want that changed as well.
In addition to the above, we also allow 32 s.f. for a permitted non residential use (church, apt complex, etc). and a 4 s.f. nameplate, but that is the only other type of signage allowed. I don't understand - people want to be able to do something (have a sign) but than not want their neighbors to have one. Do they not understand that allowing these when you have 65' wide lots that would allow a lot of signs?
Thanks for your input!!
