LOCAL LAWS AMENDING SIGN REGULATIONS
Release Date: April 16, 2018

At the April 9th Town of Newburgh Town Board Meeting, five local laws amending the Town’s sign regulations were approved following a Public Hearing.

 

The existing Municipal Code sign provisions were comprehensively changed in order to better regulate the number, size, placement, and physical characteristics of signs in the Town as well as to address changes in sign technology.  For instance, while flashing video display signs continue to be prohibited, electronic LED signs in commercial districts that illuminate an actual image without special effects or movement and do not exceed brightness limits, can change once every 30 minutes, and the transition to a new illuminated message must be completed within 4 seconds.   Such signs require a special use permit from the Town’s Planning Board.  Different forms of signs, such as flags and pylons, are addressed by the amended regulations.

 

One of the local laws authorizes the Superintendent of Highways or designee, after notice, to remove signs, posters, and stickers placed on trees, light poles, traffic signal poles, or utility poles in Town streets rights of way.  These signs will be held for 72 hours so that they can be reclaimed, for a fee, prior to their disposal.

 

Town of Newburgh Supervisor Gil Piaquadio thanked the Town Board Members, Code Compliance staff, and the Town Attorney for bringing this project to fruition after 3.5 years of work.
