City Proposing Expanded Use of Marquee Signage

Charlotte’s planning staff has proposed an amendment to the zoning ordinance that would amend the definition of a marquee sign, permit their use on commercial buildings in the MUDD (Mixed-Use) district, and remove a restriction on their use in UMUD districts. Currently, marquee signs (the projecting, awning-like signs typically used by theaters, galleries and nightclubs) are only permitted in the PED, TOD and TS districts and in UMUD districts on buildings over 100,000 SF. REBIC supports this amendment, which will be voted on by Council in February. More information and a copy of the proposed changes are available on the Planning Department’s website.
