New land-use code could spur development
Published: December 11,2012
TUPELO — A new development code in Tupelo will allow more mixing of land uses.
The code is expected to go to a vote in January, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.
If the City Council adopts the code, a transition period will follow. During that time, developers will be able to choose which code they will follow.
At a hearing last week, some business owners voiced concerns about sign regulations under the new code.
Nat Leathers of Dodge’s Stores said the proposed percentages for signs on business windows, 10 percent, and walls, 30 percent, hurt his window-heavy store.
Officials say they will consider a total percentage of signs for businesses, instead of specific ratios for walls, windows and ground.
The new code would also allow broader use of temporary banners.
