Town ofJohnstown Chapter 84 - Zoning
Section 84-21.B. Signs - General Regulations
B. Number of Signs Exclusive of direction signs, the number of signs permitted on any single parcel shall not exceed 3 per establishment. In no case shall the number of freestandingsigns exceed 1. In addition to the foregoing, up to 2 directional signs may be permitted per parcel.
Discussion: Frank Marzullo explained the request for an interpretation of the current Sign Law. He said the current sign that advertises First Choice Financial and Walmart should not be considered a freestanding sign. He is requesting an LED pylon sign that advertises First Choice Financial only. After lengthy discussion on what is considered a freestanding sign,Denis Wilson suggested that the current sign is a monument sign, since it is a structure, and therefore a freestanding sign can be erected.
Interpretation: A monument style sign is to be considered a structure, not a freestanding sign, with signage that does not protrude more than twelve inches outward.
