The City of Palm Bay is beginning the process of preparing and adopting a new sign code for the City of the Palm. The current code, adopted in 1982, has had several modifications through the years. However, due to changes in the laws governing signage and court cases interpreting those laws, a major rewrite of the Sign Code is overdue.
First steps in this endeavor will involve a series of public workshops or charrettes to determine policy areas of the Sign Code that warrant modifications. Issues to be considered at these workshops include sign amortization (what happens if an existing sign does not meet the new Sign Code requirements), the type of signs to be regulated and the type of signs to be permitted, developing criteria for signs of different types and located in different areas (commercial signs near residential for instance) and a review of the strengths and weaknesses of the current Sign Code.
Our nation, state and city are experiencing very tough economic times and we are grateful for the opportunity to pursue federal and state stimulus dollars for projects that are designed to jump start the economy, create jobs, reduce operating costs, improve the environment and enhance the quality of life for our community. We are committed to aggressively searching for all appropriate and available grant opportunities that may result in additional federal stimulus dollars to accomplish projects in the City of Palm Bay.
