There is a special Planning & Zoning Commission Meeting tonight, Monday, November 30, 2009 starting at 7:00 p.m. in the Robert Earley Auditorium / Town Hall – 45 South Main Street (the agenda can be found here).
There will be a public hearing at 7PM regarding two proposed amendments:
1) Zoning Amendment/PZC/Temporary Signs #909-09
2) Zoning Amendment/PZC/Downtown Signs #912-09
There is some summary information regarding the topics in a Record Journal article in this morning’s paper (Monday November 30th) – I have cross posted it at http://bit.ly/4OE3FN
I am going to try to get to the meeting tonight to hear all of the details but it sounds promising mainly because it sounds like the PZC is willing to listen to the concerns of the businesses and come to a consensus about how to both provide a means for allowing additional signage that will hopefully be tactful for a given business and at the same time more clearly define what is not permissible.
I don’t know if they are going to address giving any type of bite to the ordinance enforcement side (and let’s be frank – without teeth there are very few that will comply) but we’ll have to see how it all unfolds.
So bloggers – what are your thoughts ahead of the meeting?
Is this a positive step in the right direction? I think so but I am sure there are others out there with deferring opinions.
Let’s hear them.
