Ludington tightens up temporary sign ordinance

April 27, 2015

LUDINGTON — City Council tightened up the city’s temporary sign ordinance Monday, April 27, during its regular meeting.

The council already regulates when and if signs can be placed temporarily in the city’s right-of-way. The change in policy will now allow the council to request those who want to place the signs specify the size of the signs, the location of the signs, the number of signs that are being requested in the right-of-way, as well as the duration that the signs will remain in the right-of-way.

City attorney Richard Wilson told councilors that they cannot regulate the verbiage on the signs, because that is a First Amendment issue.
