The El Dorado County Community Development Agency is reminding the public that comments on the draft Sign Ordinance are due no later than Sept. 9, according to a prepared statement from the Community Development Agency.

In July 2012, the Board of Supervisors directed county staff to contract for the preparation of a comprehensive Sign Ordinance amendment, and the related Environmental Impact Report. A public review draft was completed and opened for a 60-day public review period. In August, representatives from the Community Development Agency held a series of meetings with interested citizens and businesses to answer any questions or address any concerns.

Review and comments are requested by the county to identify and consider concerns in preparation of the final draft Sign Ordinance. Written responses must be received by the Community Development Agency no later than Sept. 9. Based on comments received from the public, businesses and agencies, a final draft of the Sign Ordinance will be prepared for the Board of Supervisors’ review in October.

The draft Sign Ordinance has been posted on the following Website: edcgov.us/Government/Planning/Public_Review_draft_of_the_comprehensive_Sign_Ordinance_Update_-_60-day_public_review_period_ending_September_9,_2013.aspx.

Written comments submitted by Sept. 9 should be sent to Shawna Purvines, Community Development Agency, 2850 Fairlane Court, Placerville, CA 95667, or by e-mail at shawna.purvines@edcgov.us.

For additional information, contact the Planning Services office at 530-621-5355.

    My email already in...There should be no comments allowed about the moral and ethical “health” of a community when addressing signage. Signage is safe under the 1st amendment. It is already in law that if a bill board creates a travel “danger”—it can be taken down. Or if within the county standards-- there are so many that “clutter” is posed. By bringing in the idea of what a few think is morally and ethically “healthy” for a community…they are going against the freedom of speech. Once again there are laws in place to pull down a sign. So I say fight the individual sign…not the amendment. Fran PS As I said in a meeting—who would be in charge of what is “right” or what is “wrong.” This idea is too subjective to allow a small group of people to decide. I hope that these emails will be counted and presented to the board. Fran To: shawna.purvines@edcgov.us ;
