The Planning Commission elected not to make a decision on a new signage ordinance this morning, holding the item for a special meeting to take place on February 19. It issued several directions to staff from the Planning department, asking for revisions and more information at the February meeting.

The commission asked staff to include enforcement mechanisms in the reworked draft, as well as guidance on how to handle Sign Districts currently making their way through the planning process. While only two districts are currently in place city-wide, more than a dozen are in the approval process.

The Planning Commission asked staff to report back with more information on what might result from the elimination of on-site and off-site signage definitions and on how the height limits in the new ordinance would work.

Once the Planning Commission does approve a new ordinance, it would next go to the City Council for further discussion and eventual approval.
