Agenda Item No. 5 - Text Amendments to Chapter 113, Signs, proposed to address standards within the Town Center Overlay District.
This item was tabled in December 2021 for additional review of the entire ordinance by the City Attorney.
The Lilburn City Code provides for text amendments to be approved and adopted by the City Council in their regular course of business, and Planning Department recommends Chapter 113-Signs be amended to clarify subsections and address signage in the Town Center Overlay District to be concurrent with amendments to the Zoning Ordinance, Section 502. Recommended amendments in the Town Center Overlay propose building sign area calculations based on the street frontage and clarify permitted sign types, locations, heights, and lighting.
Section 113-17 is recommended for deletion to be reserved and amendments are proposed to subsections 113-2, 113-8, 113-9, 113-10, 113-11, 113-12, 113-14, 113-15, 113-16, 113-19, 113-19, 113-19.5, 113-20, and 113-21 add and amend definitions, clarify exempt and prohibited signs, set building sign standards for the Town Center Overlay District, correct zoning districts, and update procedures for permit denial and variances. The amendments support businesses and residents, provide a more efficient review of sign applications and assist with code compliance which contributes positively to the public health, safety, and general welfare.
Planning Commission and DDA were provided an opportunity to comment and contribute.
