Eugene Seeks to Simplify Its Sign Code

EUGENE, Ore. — After questions from the American Civil Liberties Union, the City of Eugene is trying to simplify its sign code.

The ACLU questioned some exemption’s constitutionality.

City Council discussed allowing only two signs per one-family household or duplex without a permit. Signs would also be limited to 12 square feet.

No decisions were made, but councilors said size could eventually play into the equation.

“What is our role in supporting people signing in a polite two by three wa; versus those folks that are feeling compelled to scream in a three by four way?” said City Councilor Chris Pryor.

A public hearing on the issue is scheduled for July 23.
