The city will hold two forums in early February to brief business owners and residents on proposed revisions to how Rockville regulates commercial signs.
Input is invited from Rockville’s residents and business owners. The meetings will be held 9-11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 4 and 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Mayor and Council chambers at City Hall. The purpose of the proposed revisions is to allow for more flexible designs.
The original sign code was enacted to minimize visual clutter along Rockville Pike. The proposed revisions are intended to respond to modern signage needs, while maintaining an aesthetic view for residents and visitors to the city.
Under city code, all temporary or permanent commercial signs require a sign permit, unless specifically exempted.
