Duluth Modifies Sign Code After ISA Objections
The Duluth, Minn. Planning Division has released a significantly revised sign ordinance proposal following an October 2012 public hearing during which ISA's Kenny Peskin (@signcodeguy) raised objections to numerous provisions. In the revised proposal, staff has removed the objectionable clauses that "limited the number of items of information" on a sign. In addition, the modified proposal now features an increase in pole sign height, larger sizes for monument and pole signs, and clearer technical writing throughout the ordinance. The Duluth Planning Commission will hold a vote on recommendation of the sign code on November 13 at 5:00 p.m. For more information, please contact ISA's Kenny Peskin or the Minnesota Sign Association's Steve Fox.
