The Edmonds Planning Board at its Wednesday, June 22 meeting is scheduled to finalize its recommendation to the Edmonds City Council on proposed changes to the Edmonds Sign Code regarding A-frame, or sandwich-board, signs.
After considering public comments and deliberating on three options for pedestrians signs, the Planning Board agreed to support creation of a new section in the sign code for pedestrian signs that will permit those signs as a new type of permanent signage with specific conditions. This recommended code will:
• Limit the number of pedestrian signs to one pedestrian sign per ground floor entrance,
• Require signs to be brought in when the business is closed,
• Restrict the placement of pedestrian signs to ensure clear path for pedestrian access,
• Provide enough flexibility for placement to address each site’s specific conditions,
• Require a permit for signs which will aid in enforcement, and
• Count each pedestrian sign towards the overall number and square footage of signage allowed per business.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. June 22 in the Council Chambers, Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N. You can see the complete agenda here.
