Historic Signs in Tucson

Historic Signs in Tucson

On Tuesday night, the Tucson City Council unanimously approved a new Historic Landmark Sign (HLS) ordinance. ISA's James Carpentier testified before the council in support of the sign ordinance. The code allows for the repair, restoration, adaptive reuse and replication of older signs. The signs that qualify for an HLS designation need to have been built prior to 1961 for a "classic" designation and prior to 1974 for a "transitional" designation. The HLS code includes the ability to relocate an HLS sign within another area that is an HLS concentration and also includes a process for qualifying a sign for an HLS designation.
