ORDINANCE NO. 061055

 

Extending a moratorium until February 12, 2007, on the issuance of building/sign permits for the construction of certain outdoor advertising signs at locations that would not comply with the provisions of Ordinance No. 051402, as originally introduced and considered.

 

WHEREAS, Ordinance No. 051402, as originally introduced, would make certain changes to the requirements for the location of outdoor advertising signs (billboards); and

WHEREAS, public hearings were held on the proposed changes to the zoning ordinance and all required notices were given, and a recommendation was made on the proposed changes by the City Plan Commission on March 7, 2006; and

WHEREAS, the Council recognizes that outdoor advertising signs may have an adverse impact on the Citys neighborhoods and the quality of life of our citizens if they are not properly located; and

WHEREAS, the City has contracted with a consultant to study the Citys sign provisions and make recommendations for comprehensive changes; and

WHEREAS, the Council believes that it is imperative that no permits be issued for new signs or expansion of existing signs that would not be in compliance with the originally proposed changes while changes to the sign ordinance are being considered; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council decided to impose permanently a portion of the changes proposed in the introduced ordinance, as passed in Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 051402, and impose temporarily, through the passage of this moratorium ordinance, the remaining portions of the introduced ordinance so that no new or expanded billboards can be permitted while the proposed changes are being further studied; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

Section 1. That the Mayor and Council hereby declare that there is a moratorium on the issuance of new building/sign permits for new outdoor advertising signs or for the expansion of existing signs along City streets that would be in violation of the terms of Ordinance No. 051402, as originally introduced, until February 12, 2007, provided that: (1) this moratorium shall not apply to the issuance of building/sign permits for the repair, replacement or relocation of existing outdoor advertising signs that do not comply with original proposed Ordinance No. 051402 as long as the existing sign area is not enlarged and that any relocation occurs on the same property as the existing sign and (2) this moratorium shall not apply to installation of new outdoor advertising signs along
interstate highways and limited access highways/trafficways as long as they comply with the existing regulations contained in Section 80-220, Code of Ordinances; and (3) this moratorium shall not apply to any sign which is less that 300 square feet in area and which advertises businesses in a commercial area which are within 500 feet of the sign.
