The Signs Are A-Changing? – Proposal To Modify Zoning Signs

Posted by Ed C on Saturday, March 31, 2007

The Examiner highlights a proposal by Greg Fox (R-District 5) in Official aims to make meeting details more accessible to county residents.

Fox’s proposed measure would make the signs smaller, color-coded and include a large code in the top left corner, identifying the project. Residents can enter that code into the county’s Web site to find out information on the meeting and track the development plans, he said.

This seems like a simple and welcome change to make information easier to get. I wonder if it would be feasible to add a requirement to have information sheets available at the sign – similar to the “take one” mailboxes that Realtors currently use.

Making the case number prominently displayed on the signs and an obvious way to enter that information into the County’s web site is one thing, but being able to take a sheet with the same information and listing the URL for additional information could also be useful.
