TITLE 8 SUBDIVISION REGULATIONS

CHAPTER 7 CITY OF MENAN SIGN REGULATIONS

SECTION 8-7-1 PURPOSE

The purpose and objectives of this ordinance are:
   
  (A)          To recognize signs are a necessary means of visual communication for the public's convenience, and businesses and individuals have the right to identify themselves and convey messages by using signs, and that signs are accessory and incidental to the use of the premises where they are located; and
   
  (B)           To provide a reasonable balance between the right of an individual or a business to identify itself and to convey its message, and the right of the public to be protected against the visual discord resulting from the  unrestricted proliferation of signs; and
   
  (C)          To insure signs are compatible with adjacent land uses and with the total visual environment of the community, and the value of nearby property and economic health of the community, as a whole are protected; and
   
  (D)          To provide minimum standards for regulating the size, height, structural materials/requirements and the duration of all signs, including temporary signs and displays on the outsides of buildings visible from the public rights-of-way; and
   
  (E)           To enable the fair and consistent enforcement of these sign regulations; by regulating the location, construction, duration, number and maintenance of signs in order to enhance the aesthetic environment; and by promoting public safety, health and general welfare, and providing for the greater good of the community.
