Did you know that the flapping/fluttering signs that you see along roadways all over the county are illegal? The County Council is considering legislation that will legalize them, and likely induce a major increase in these and other signs along the roadways of the county that currently are illegal. The problem is that AA County sign policies are in failure mode. Illegal signs are ubiquitous, and enforcement is ineffective at curbing them.
Rather than comprehensive reform that serves the needs of businesses and consumers, and has an enforcement element, Bill 66-21, if enacted, will legalize flapping signs, rooftop signs, and illegally placed signs that blight our roadways.
