Administrator would like information regarding ordinances dealing with
overhanging signs. We are also looking into allowing a symbolic type
structure i.e.: yarn shop--ball of yarn;
Locksmith--key; the signs would not be allowed to have any
lettering or wording in any language.
Please send any thoughts or input regarding allowing this
type of visual aid.

We would appreciate copies of ordinances or any thoughts on
Sandy: South Burlington has a very detailed sign ordinance I will be glad
to send you rather than
try to explain overhang rules but they are covered. I can fax you the
appropriate page if you wish.
Symbols and blow-up signs are treated as signs, and under the control of
the ordinance, if they
advertise a product actually sold by the establishment. This is
true whether or not they have any
wording associated with the symbol. A ball of yarn for a yarn shop
IS a sign.
