Sign Restrictions to Get Council Vote in March

KNDO

It has been nearly a year since the city of Yakima initiated its first moratorium on billboards and now the city is closer to making final decisions.

After two six-month moratoriums and multiple meetings, the Yakima Planning Commission is in the process of writing an ordinance to send to the city council. There is a public hearing on the proposed changes today at city hall from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The law would ban any new billboards, keep on-premise digital signs to a limit of 40 square feet and regulate brightness levels. All digital signs would have to be static, meaning no moving pictures.

The Commission says the two areas around town that are the focus of the new law would be North First St. and Nob Hill Blvd.

The Commission will present a draft resolution on the issue Wednesday with the city council voting on Mar. 18.
