Sign Committee

  • Point of Contact: Not Jamie.
  • Someone should take on the task of understanding the Code and contacting the city, just to touch base.
  • That someone should be able to entertain the numerous ideas and figure out which ones are legal and practical.
  • That someone should, possibly before the above steps, consider bringing the subject up at a meeting and getting committee status for it, which would make the single-effort thing official, among other benefits like easier budgeting.
  • All the rest of us should kindly refrain from bikeshedding unless someone actually doing something asks for our input.

Ok, the code is not that complicated, really. We'd do a Wall Sign, either attached to the wall above the garage, landlord permitting, or painted/vinyled onto the garage door. Both are in the same category of sign.

Wall Sign restraints

  • Size of sign: 40 sqft or 10% of wall area, whichever's smaller. Need to get someone from the city to come out and measure our wall area.
  • Can't stick out more than 12 inches.
  • Have to have a permit

(Relevant) Restraints on all signs

  • No blinky lights, excessively bright lights, or bare bulbs, but it can be lit
  • Materials have to be approved. No ugly materials or structurally unsound materials.
