Planning Board set to finalize A-frame sign recommendations June 22

city of edmonds logoThe 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.
