Council talks sign codes

Snoqualmie businesses may have to wait a bit longer before they can get their business advertised on monument signs in city-owned right-of-ways.

A proposal to allow business signs on city land was reviewed by city’s Community and Economic Affairs Committee and will now be scrutinized as part of a broad overview of sign rules.

Monument signs are typically freestanding signs that are low to the ground.

The economic affairs committee recommended that monument signs be included in the city sign code, now being reviewed by the Snoqualmie Planning Commission. Their recommendations will be presented to the commission.

“This is consistent with [the] council’s consensus that all sign code should be handled as a whole in that chapter, rather than in a piecemeal fashion,” said Maria Henriksen, Snoqualmie city councilwoman and CEAC chairwoman.

The sign issue was first broached at the Feb. 23 council meeting, after some council members argued that businesses could use the extra exposure during tough economic times.
