Information Sessions on Proposed Sign Ordinance

Town staff is recommending a new Sign Code due to modern technological advances and changes required by recent State and Federal Supreme Court cases.  The proposed amendment seeks to meet the needs of businesses and other organizations while protecting and enhancing the visual quality and traditional design concepts of Emmitsburg. 

Staff will present the proposed sign ordinance to the Board of Commissioners and the public during three separate regularly scheduled town meetings:

  1. February 4, 2019 – Sections 17.38.010 through 17.38.050
  2. March 4, 2019 – Sections 17.38.060 through 17.38.080
  3. June 3, 2019 – Sections 17.38.090 through 17.38.230
