LIGHTS OUT: Sign ordinance changes

May 15, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — It took no longer than the blink of an eye for the city to change its ordinance on flashing message signs.

Columbia City’s Common Council gave the final stamp of approval to an ordinance change regarding electronic message centers Tuesday. However, those signs, which flash in seconds, have been debated for months at the Columbia City Planning Commission.

Dave Sewell, of the commission, spoke to the common council and informed them of this ordinance change. Some were concerned with potential current violations, but Sewell noted all existing signs will be allowed.

“Nobody will be made illegal by doing this,” he said. “It will only apply to new signage.”
