Redwood City Schedules Workshop for Revision of City’s Sign Ordinance
Redwood City, CA - December 20 , 2006 - Business operators in Redwood City know that their signage is important to identify and promote their business. Likewise, the business image of Redwood City as a whole is very important to the success of our entire community.
In order to provide clear and consistent guidelines for business signage and help support our City’s positive business image, Redwood City is revising the City’s Sign Ordinance. The business community and other interested people are invited to join the discussion of the City’s draft Sign Ordinance and proposed revisions.
Tuesday, January 9, 2007
6:30 pm in the City Council Chambers
City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road
At this workshop, key elements of the Draft Sign Ordinance will be discussed, and participants will have the opportunity to contribute their views, opinions, and suggestions prior to the public hearing before the City Council (anticipated in February of 2007).
A brief staff presentation will highlight the modifications proposed in the new draft, and will identify the various types of signs involved and their proposed regulation. The Draft Sign Ordinance addresses both permanent and temporary signage, with regulations affecting two distinct sign categories: signs located on private property as well as signs located on public property.
The Draft Sign Ordinance can be viewed online. A copy of the Draft Sign Ordinance can also be obtained in the Planning Department at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, or by requesting one at 780-7234.
