Due to a last-minute revision, the commission was advised to postpone a vote on the second reading of an ordinance that aims to regulate human signs. The ordinance defines human signs as "commercial signs that are continuously held, spun or attached to a person that advertise a business, commodity, service or product." According to the agenda, this ordinance is a response to an observed increase in human signs and will prohibit human sign twirlers from being located on public property. If passed, human signs will need to remain located on the same parcel or common areas within which the business, commodity, service or product is located, or risk a penalty. In addition, no human sign may exceed more than 2 feet by 4 feet. The second reading and public hearing have been rescheduled for the May 2 commission meeting.
