Comment sought on Chandler sign regulations
The City of Chandler is seeking public comment on proposed amendments to its sign regulations.
Chandler businesses and residents can review the proposed amendments to the sign code at chandleraz.gov/planning, complete an online survey and submit comments. In addition, comments have been gathered through stakeholder meetings with the business community.
The Planning and Zoning Commission will conduct a public hearing to review and hear public comments on the proposed sign code at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 19, in the City Council Chambers, 88 E. Chicago St.
Amendments to the City’s sign code will be introduced at a public hearing during the Chandler City Council meeting on Thursday, May 11. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 88 E. Chicago St.
Proposed amendments to Chandler’s sign code allow for signs previously not allowed, including A-frame and T-frame signs for businesses, and allows for placement of some sign types in public right of way.
In addition, the maximum number of temporary signs allowed for events occurring on private property, such as garage sales and open houses, would increase from four signs to10 signs.
The requirement to obtain a permit also was eliminated for smaller temporary freestanding signs.
