Subject:
Public Hearing on an ordinance regulating temporary advertising signage as proposed by the Falmouth Economic Improvement Committee (FEIC).

ACTION: Schedule order.
Summary:
On December 12, 2011, the Council authorized the Falmouth Economic Improvement Committee (FEIC) to develop, with Town staff assistance, temporary signage options for the Council’s consideration.

The FEIC has worked with staff to develop the ordinance.  The FEIC proposes that these provisions for temporary advertising signs automatically expire on December 31, 2013, unless the Council votes before that date to extend them.

This amendment also includes moving all regulations regarding temporary signs from the Zoning Ordinance to the Code of Ordinances and provides for an exemption for temporary municipal signs or temporary signs on municipally owned or controlled property.

Attachments include a Letter of Introduction from Councilor Armitage, dated April 5, 2012; memo from A. Stearns dated May 10, 2012; Proposed Code of Ordinance Amendment Language, dated May 10, 2012; Proposed amendment to the Zoning and Site Plan Review Ordinance dated May 8, 2012 and Temporary sign examples.

An order is tentatively scheduled for May 30, 2012.
