Touch up work on sign code planned

KINGMAN - The Kingman Planning and Zoning Commission plans to put the finishing touches on a couple of relatively benign zoning ordinance text amendments when it meets tonight.

First, the commission will look at a city-initiated request to amend two sections of Kingman's sign code - definitions and temporary signs. The proposed amendments would change the definition of political and ideological signs and add a reference to Council's sign-free zone resolution, which defines the area where political and ideological signs are not allowed on local government's rights-of-way.

Next, the commission will look to clean up some redundancy within the penalty section of Kingman's zoning ordinance. The plan is to add language that defines zoning violations as Class 1 misdemeanors and remove language that outlines the penalties for those violations, and instead refer people to the section of the Kingman Code that deals with misdemeanor penalties.

The commission meets at 6 tonight at 310 N. Fourth St.
