Subject:
Order for amendments to the Code of Ordinances and the Zoning and Site Review Ordinance regulating temporary advertsing signage as proposed by the Falmouth Economic Improvement Committee (FEIC).

ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
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. This effort followed an informal survey the FEIC had conducted with about 14 Falmouth businesses. The survey indicated that businesses would find temporary signage to be beneficial to their enterprise.

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 municipal signs or signs on municipally owned or controlled property.

Attachments include the Letter of Introduction from Councilor Armitage, dated April 5, 2012 and the Ordinance Amendment Language.
