2010 - 767
Several speakers, both for and against, were heard. Most of the speakers focused on either the provisions concerning temporary directional real estate signs or the provisions concerning changing message devices, rather than the entirety of the bill. Many suggested that the bill should be separated into two pieces of legislation so that the two issues could be considered independently. It was noted that this would allow the temporary directional real estate sign provisions to move forward, while allowing further discussion of the changing message device provisions.
Two amendments were approved, but these will be drafted as one amendment at the suggestion of the Office of General Counsel. Said amendment will allow temporary directional real estate signs in historic districts, limiting such signs to three, and will remove the provisions concerning changing message devices from this legislation.
AMEND/APPROVE 7 - 0
The meeting was adjourned at 11:44 a.m.
