What it means: This Article seeks to clarify existing language regarding signs in the Professional Office/Residential District (POR). It also establishes a list of permitted signs, designates the approval authority for each, and size requirements within this District. Any sign type not listed in the proposed table is prohibited.
Those in favor say: No one spoke in favor of the Article, except to explain its intention.
Those against say: One speaker suggested that a similar sign ordinance had been rejected by the voters in the past. In the Know Hampton was unable to confirm that. There was a previous voter rejection of limitations on sandwich boards; however, sandwich boards are specifically allowed under the current Article. If more information is forthcoming, In the Know Hampton will make it available in a subsequent post.
