Proposed sign ordinance finds opponents
GREENWOOD — A proposed Greenwood sign ordinance restricting the size of freestanding signs and outdoor banners is drawing fire from Greenwood sign companies.
The proposed changes will be discussed at today’s meeting of the Greenwood City Council.
Greenwood Mayor Carolyn McAdams said that Shelly Johnstone, who developed the city’s 30-year plan, will speak on the changes.
McAdams tells The Greenwood Commonwealth that the ordinance will define the height and the size of signs and will address digital electronic signs.
McAdams said that a community steering committee, part of the 30-year plan, has already approved the general concept of the proposed sign ordinance.
Cale Ainsworth, owner of Ainsworth Signs Co., said he’s seen a copy of the proposed ordinance and it is bad.
