The Town has a permanent moveable type sign at the community centre, in the institutional zone, which is mainly intended to be used for advertising community events but from time to time they allow a local business to advertise a sale or some other commercial activity.
The sign is much larger than what we are intending to allow in the zone. In addition, in the revised by-law we are intending to allow only 1 sq ft of commercial sponsorship on signs in the institutional or open space zones.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this sign? Although in the office our initial reaction is to not allow commercial use of the sign we don't think this option will be acceptable since there is some revenue from the commercial advertisers.
