Hattiesburg Land Development Code Amendment – Section 10 Signs

Hattiesburg Land Development Code Amendment – Section 10 Signs

In early 2017, the City of Hattiesburg adopted a new Land Development Code (LDC).  Over the last year the Planning Division has had the opportunity to work with the new LDC – as many of you have as well – putting it into practice.  The proposed changes are a product of staff input, research, and input from stakeholders. While there is likely no “perfect” code, practical application often gives light to certain opportunities or gaps upon which we can continue to improve. This is only the second of what will likely be a series of three or more “batches” of amendments. 

At the June 6, 2018 Planning Commission meeting (1:00 p.m. at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center), the City will present proposed amendments related to Section 10 Signs for consideration. The general intent of the proposed amendment is an effort to clarify language, modify regulations, and to enhance overall sign regulations within the Land Development Code. See the memo embedded below for a change-by-change explanation. The proposed ordinance is also embedded below.
