1. Second Reading: Restrictions on human sign twirlers

Tonight, Ocoee city leaders will see the second reading and public hearing for an ordinance that aims to regulate human signs, which are commercial signs that continuously held, spun or attached to a person that advertises a business, commodity, service or product. According to the city, this ordinance is in response to the increase in human signs observed by the city's Community Redevelopment Agency. If passed, this ordinance will forbid human sign twirlers from being located on public property and restrict one human sign per business. In addition, all human signs must remain located on the same parcel or common areas within which the business, commodity, service or product is located and no human sign can exceed more than 2 feet by 4 feet. 

2. First Reading: Adjustment to park hours

The Ocoee City Commission will also vote on the first reading of an ordinance that aims to amend the opening hours of several city parks and outdoor recreation facilities. The ordinance would change the closing hours from 11:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. for Bill Breeze Park, Central Park, Jim Beech Complex, Municipal Lakefront Park, Sorenson Fields, Tiger Minor Park, Vignetti Park, and make the closing hours from 9:00 p.m. to sunset for Forest Oaks Park, Freedom Park, Jamela Street Park,  Palm Park,  Palm Drive Park,  Parkside/Coventry Park,  Prairie Lake Park, Russell Drive Park and Silver Glen Park.
