Council to discuss proposed changes to sign ordinance at today's Council lunch

At the direction of City Council, a Sign Task Force has revisited the proposed changes to the City's sign ordinance (pdf) and will bring the revised ordinance to Council in March. At today's City Council lunch (noon, Busch Building 4th Floor Conference Room), Council will discuss the point-by-point language comparison (pdf) related to the items that presented the most discussion. For example, the task force revisited the concerns regarding the content and determined that the use of off-premise advertising should be limited to state-controlled routes only. Additional information will be presented today.
