Board of Supervisors Approves Amendments to Loudoun County Sign Ordinance

From Loudoun County - The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has approved amendments to the Loudoun County sign ordinance, which revise and create new standards for business signs for commercial uses and add off-site directional signs for certain uses. The Board also approved associated amendments to the schedule of fees for land development applications. The amendments are effective March 1, 2011.

Revision of the county’s sign ordinance is part of the Board’s Strategic Plan. The goals of the revisions include making Loudoun County’s sign regulations friendlier to businesses and preserving community standards regarding the proliferation of roadside signage and billboards.

Tuesday’s Board action came after an extensive public process, beginning with the adoption of a resolution of intent to amend the county’s zoning ordinance in September 2009 and again in February 2010. Both the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors held public hearings on the proposed amendments.
