Greetings all from the now warming City of Calgary!
Myself and a couple of other planners will be embarking on the giant task of reviewing and tweeking our sign rules in the City's Land Use Bylaw.
I was wondering if anyone might have some examples of sign rules that were geared specifically to parcels where buildings have been redeveloped to street oriented buildings. The City has adopted some major new policies to promote the development of new, street oriented sites and one concept we're considering with signs is to look at things from two different perspectives: auto-oriented developments and then street oriented developments. This way; we might be able to bring a sense of scale back to signage; which not terribly restricting things like third party or freestanding signs.
I'm also wondering if anyone has regulations that would be along the same lines but more pedestrian oriented for TOD areas?
Any help that y'all could provide would be of great help!
