Eugene Council Discusses Sign Code

EUGENE, Ore. — The American Civil Liberties Union is pushing the Eugene City Council to make amendments to the city’s sign code.

Amendments to the code were once again up for discussion at the council’s work session.

Proposed amendments include allowing two signs or banners on all residential properties permit free. Each of those could not exceed 12 square feet.

The ACLU also wants the city to be required to decide on a permit application within three weeks.

“In residential areas there really aren’t many options, and so the exemptions pretty much are all you’ve got and in a residential area and so we want to make it simpler and clearer,” said David Fidanque, Oregon ACLU Executive Director.

The council is scheduled to vote on this issue at the end of November.
