Fremont Chamber Forms Sign Ordinance Sub-Committee

by Linda Stone

The city of Fremont will receive recommendations from a sub-committee created to streamline and clarify current sign regulations after they meet to discuss the issues outlined by the Chamber of Commerce.

On Jan. 21 the Chamber held a meeting to bring members of the community together to revamp what some have called a confusing set of rules for placing signage in front of businesses.

Several issues were brought up at the meeting from various business owners. Concerns ranged from uneven enforcement of signage infractions to how to best preserve historical districts from becoming overrun with unattractive signs.

The group broke up into five committees and will study various sections of the ordinances to address signs in proximity to freeways, promotional signs (A-frame signs, special event banners and temporary signage), objectives, exemptions and restrictions to the ordinance, building signs and freestanding signs.

The recommendation will be presented to the city in March.
