Council to consider amending sign ordinance
Placeholder Image
Camden City Council will consider at its meeting Tuesday evening first reading of an amendment to the city’s sign ordinance, specifically a section concerning freestanding signs. If passed on second reading at a subsequent meeting, the ordinance would replace Section 157.069(A)(1) with the following language: “Principal and institutional freestanding signs are allowed on lots with at least 50 feet of street frontage.” An analysis contained in a memorandum to council included with Tuesday’s agenda, City Planner Shawn Putnam said the existing regulation prohibits signs on lots that have less than 100 feet of street frontage and buildings set back less than 35 feet from the front property line.”
