Corn Burning Fool
Can someone tell me how you handle these in your sign code?
A lot of them come in under "flag' exemptions in code that were intended to allow the old state/US flag display by right- which of course was then made content-neutral post Reed and a little more ambiguous- but if you define a flag as being mounted on a pole where the portion of the pole that does not hold the flag is at least 5x the length of the portion of the flag mounted to the pole, you close this loophole.We prohibit them under "animated" sign.
I actually don't see their utility anyways, as they are effectively illegible all the time and since their vertical they aren't easily read at the speed of traffic anyways.
I've come to the conclusion after 18 years of sign code management/enforcement that if you think many temp signs will or are actually helping your business, you're probably barely holding on.
We've given a lot of passes, especially on temporary signage during COVID. For years many of the churches put out the feather signs Sunday morning and take them up after services.Not allowed. Given a pass during covid.
