Public comments on El Dorado County Community Development Agency’s draft sign ordinance are due Sept. 9.

In July 2012, the board of supervisors directed staff to contract for the preparation of a comprehensive sign ordinance amendment, and the related Environmental Impact Report. A public review draft was completed and opened for a 60-day public review period. In August, representatives from the Community Development Agency held a series of meetings with interested citizens and businesses to answer any questions or address any concerns, according to a press release.

The ordinance will apply to the South Shore unless otherwise covered by the Tahoe Area Plan, according to Mike Applegarth of El Dorado County.
