SECTION 5.17 - SIGN REGULATIONS
General Sign Regulations:
No sign shall be erected at any location, whereby reason of the position, size, shape, color, movement, or illumination, may interfere with or obstruct the view of traffic, nor shall any sign be confused with any authorized traffic sign, signal, or device.
All signs shall be designed, constructed, and maintained so as to be appropriate in appearance with the existing or intended character of their vicinity so as not to change the aesthetic character of such area.
In the Agricultural District and all residential districts, signs may be illuminated only by non-flashing, reflected light. Any light used to illuminate such signs shall be so arranged as to reflect light away from adjoining premises and streets.
In the Commercial District, all signs may be illuminated internally or by reflected light provided the source of light is not directly visible and is so arranged to reflect away from the adjoining premises and streets. No illumination involving movement by reason of the lighting arrangement or other devices shall be permitted.
Unless otherwise specifically stated, all signs shall conform to the yard and height requirements of the district in which said sign is located.
Signs on commercially-zoned property located on US-127 may be placed up to ten
feet from the front right of way and shall conform to all other provisions of the District.
One (1) on-site sign identifying a park, school building, church, or other public building not to exceed eighteen (18) square feet in area, is permitted.
Permitted On-Site Signs in the Agricultural District: The following on-site signs are permitted on any one (1) lot in the Agricultural District:
