City Sign Code Update


Open House Meetings November 8 and 17

The City of Colorado Springs Land Use Review Division is updating the City Sign Code.

The Land Use Review Division Staff will host open house meetings for public review of the proposed sign code update on Tuesday, November 8 and Thursday, November 17.  Both meetings will be held from 5 – 7 p.m. at the City Administration Building (30 South Nevada) in Room 102.

The goal of the Sign Code update is to promote an attractive built environment, successful commercial districts, and a healthy local economy while working to incorporate contemporary industry products, technology & marketing practices and improve understanding, application, flexibility and enforcement of sign standards.

The draft addresses four identified priorities: make needed code clarifications, address aesthetic issues, improve the use of sign packages and plans, and respond to new technologies (address electronic message centers, also known as LED signs).

The current draft and documentation is available at www.SpringsGov.com/2011SignCode.  Questions, thoughts and ideas can be forwarded to City Planners Meggan Herington or Lonna Thelen:
