Sign ordinance final draft on way

City of Sweet Home Community Development Director Carol Lewis is completing a final draft of a new sign ordinance.

The Planning Commission held a work session on June 7 to review the latest draft.

Lewis said the final draft will include a handful of grammatical changes. It also clarifies certain provisions, such as how to measure the height of a sign on excavated ground.

The final draft of the ordinance revisions could go to a public hearing before the Planning Commission as early as August, but the date has not been set yet, Lewis said. The planning office is preparing a list for notification of the hearing.

As soon as she gets a feel for how that task is going, then the city will set a date for the hearing, Lewis said.
