Supreme Court Case Spurs Sign Ordinance Update

by Lisa Dawsey Smith, Whitewater Banner Staff

In a roughly 90 minute long regular meeting, Whitewater’s Plan and Architectural Review Commission undertook what was described as a work session to review and discuss a proposed rewrite to the City’s sign ordinance. Background included reference to a Supreme Court case found here that debated and rendered decision about the legality of regulating the content of signs. Businesses or community members wishing to view the draft ordinance can find that here as one of the supporting documents for the meeting’s agenda. Those also wishing to view the entirety of the meeting can find that posted to the city’s Vimeo account here when it has been uploaded. The next regular meeting of the Plan and Architectural Review Commission is scheduled for September 14th at 6 pm and is expected to be a virtual meeting.

Also discussed with no action taken was an application for a driveway expansion for a residence located on Clay Street. That item is also expected to return for the September meeting.
