Sunnyside sign ordinance moves to public hearing July 13

After months of tweaking the City of Sunnyside's proposed sign ordinance, a carefully crafted document detailing the acceptable types of business signage will be presented for citizens' comments at a Sunnyside Planning Commission public hearing in July.

The public hearing will be held July 13, at a regular Planning Commission meeting to be held at the Sunnyside Law and Justice Center.

The Sunnyside Planning Commission finally has a draft document it feels will address minimum standards for the number, size design and quality of commercial signs allowed a Sunnyside business.

The commissioners, meeting Wednesday night, reviewed the most recent adjustment to the ordinance language, which includes specific designation for advertising banners, as well as awnings, and even the height and number of signs a business may be allowed.

The draft ordinance also includes requirements for sign permits.

The sign ordinance was the result of City Council concerns about the growing number of temporary business signs and advertising banners.

The Planning Commission's proposed document is designed to address those concerns while placing restrictions on the types of signs used by businesses

Following the July 13 public hearing the ordinance is expected to be forwarded to the City Council for its eventual passage.
