Little Support to Change Yakima’s Sign Laws

newstalkkit.com

If  Wednesday nights Yakima Planning Commission public meeting on signs is any indication, there is not much support to change the cities signage laws.  Most of the testimony heard came from the sign industry and little came from residents concerned about signs. The hearing was held as the city looks into changing it’s regulations on digital signs and billboard.  Yakima City Planning Commission Chairman Ben Shoval says its obvious there’s no public outcry to change the cities sign laws. “I think the most important thing is that we focus on the needs of our businesses, and they made clear that they needs signs in order to operate.

The city has placed a moratorium on new billboards and digital signs. Yakima City Development Director and Planning Manager Steve Osguthorpe says the city will continue to ask the public for more input before a decision is made.

Another planning commission meeting will be held January 8th.
