HUDSON, OH (February 27, 2020) – At the February 25, 2020 City Council Workshop, Council discussed the proposed Land Development Code Sign Regulation Amendments that will appear on the March 3, 2020 Council meeting agenda for a third reading. Council will vote whether to implement the proposed amendments at that time.
If passed on March 3, the amendments will be the first step towards an updated and improved sign code. Moving forward, the City will monitor how the new amendments affect merchants and will continue to make changes that support the merchants and business community. Council appreciates the significant time and effort the merchant community has dedicated to these updates.
The proposed amendments are summarized as follows:
In addition to the above amendments, Council has directed staff to review signage allowances for places of religious worship and other non-residential uses to determine if any further amendments should be considered.
The effort to update the sign regulations began in 2019 when merchants raised concerns with several sign standards based on enforcement cases. The City worked with a stakeholder group made up of area merchants to gain insight and feedback regarding the proposed amendments.
