Sign Code Changes Possible

Changes may be coming to the rules that control signs for businesses along Kirksville streets. At this week’s council study session, Codes and Planning Director Brad Selby will discuss with council memebers several proposed changes. The City Council adopted a sign code back in 2001 after considering recommendations made by a committee of business owners, sign company representatives and general citizens. The code was updated again in 2005 after a similar process. In 2011 the Code was updated to clarify the exact limitations on signs allowed, dimensions. It was also changed to allow additional signs along street frontage for office complexes and shopping centers that did not have a main identification sign on the right of way.
