Help on sign code

Tim Truesdale

We are developing a new Sign Code that would eliminate new pole signs. As proposed, it would also require all existing pole signs to come down within 5 years. I have 2 questions:

1) Has anyone heard of any other communities that have required all existing pole signs to come down?

2) Has anyone put together a rationale for how elimination of pole signs boosts economic development efforts?
