ORDINANCE NO. 060338

 

Declaring a moratorium until May 8, 2006, on the issuance of building 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 would make certain changes to the requirements for the location of outdoor advertising signs (billboards); and

 

WHEREAS, public hearings have been held on the proposed changes to the zoning ordinance and all required notices have been 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 Planning, Zoning and Economic Development Committee has asked the director of City Development to study the sign ordinance and meet with stakeholders and report back in forty-five days regarding suggested changes to the sign ordinance; and

 

WHEREAS, while Ordinance No. 051402 has been pending, there has been a number of applications for new billboard permits; and

 

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

 

WHEREAS, the Council has decided to impose permanently a portion of the changes proposed in the introduced ordinance, as shown in Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 051402, and impose temporarily, through 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:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby declare that there is a moratorium on the issuance of new building permits for new outdoor advertising signs or for the expansion of existing signs that would be in violation of the terms of Ordinance No. 051402, as introduced, until May 8, 2006, provided that 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. The City Manager is directed to carry out the requirements of this resolution.
