PUBLIC HEARING: Sign Code Amendments Ordinance

The proposed changes to the existing City of Ferndale sign code address a US Supreme Court decision related to signs within the public right-of-way, removing “content based” regulations, limiting the size of signs, and adopting other restrictions.

The proposed draft would allow agency and traffic control signs, and signs less than eight square feet in size that are not offensive, unsafe, that do not represent a hazard, and which do not impair the ability of the City to maintain the public right of way. On private property, signs would be regulated primarily based on safety and hazard, with building codes acting as the primary guidance for larger, structural signs.

Language that has been determined to be unconstitutional has been removed.

Councilmember Taylor moved, and Councilmember G. Hansen seconded, to approve the agenda bill. MOTION CARRIED 5-2, Councilmembers Olson and Watson opposed.
