The signs of Naperville will soon be changing.
Representatives from the City spoke at the most recent Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce Legislative Luncheon about proposed changes to the City’s signage regulations.
This after a recent U.S. Supreme Court case determined that signs cannot be regulated based on their content when determining the size of the sign and the length of time it can stay up.
The new code will affect everything from political signs, advertising signs, menu boards and gas station signs.
“You know this is your sign code, this is for Naperville, you’re the businesses in our community that really rely on this as a tool to display your messages and we want to make sure that we’re being customer friendly and we’re doing it right,” said Amy Emery, from the City’s Transportation, Engineering and Development Department.
The City will continue to work on the change in code in hope of completion by the end of the year.
The new code will be available for review at the end of the month online at naperville.il.us/signcode.
