Meetings to discuss proposed amendment to sign ordinance
The Carroll County commissioners will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. Aug. 5 in Room 003 of the County Office Building to hear comments on a proposed amendment to Chapter 223 (Zoning) of the Code of Public Local Laws and Ordinances of Carroll County.
The proposed amendment to Section 223-139 would reduce height and area of outdoor advertising signs pertaining to a use off the premises. It would also include a conference with members of the public and the zoning administrator before approval.
Before the public hearing, county staff will answer questions and receive comments at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Room 003 of the county building, 225 N. Center St., Westminster. The meeting is not a substitute for the public hearing, but comments and proposals made tomorrow will be considered.
The information meeting is an opportunity for the public to raise questions or discuss the proposed ordinances.
The commissioners may make amendments to the proposed ordinance based upon the comments received and may do so without further hearing.
