[IowaAPA] Banner Sign Regulation

All,



Does anyone regulate banners as far as providing for a definition of a
special event or special promotion? The issue we are having is one
particular business in our community is maximizing their display time under
code and just using that for more regular advertising than a grand opening
or special promotion. Also, does anyone differentiate between commercial
versus institutional uses as far as banner regulations? Our Community
Development Committee has directed us to look into these two areas for
banner regulation.

The City of Des Moines only allows special event signage for 10 days in one year and the time cannot be split. The year is from the starting date of the special event signage. Any type of signage is allowed for the special event including signage that is not allowed by the ordinance. The rest of the time only allowed signage can be displayed.

In Des Moines a business or institution may also seek a 30 day window under Special Permit request to the Board of Adjustment (BOA) for temporary signage. We have had churches also seek a Special Pemit from BOA for light pole mounted fabric banner signs (similar to street light bannersA) in their parking lot that would be changed with the religious season but be up permanently with something.

I have tried three times in the last two weeks to unsubscribe from this list to no avail. If anyone can give me more specific directions or if someone has the power please take me off.
