Temple City : Ban on Rooftop Signs OKd

In a preliminary vote, the City Council has approved a measure that would outlaw rooftop business signs.

Community Development Director Robert Dawson said he has never seen a request for a rooftop sign since he began employment with the city in 1987, and added that there are only a few businesses that have such signs.

But, he said, there is no law preventing them.

If the measure, passed 4 to 0 Tuesday, receives final council approval at the Oct. 1 meeting, those few businesses that do have rooftop signs will have 15 years from when the ordinance goes into effect to remove them, Dawson said.
