NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE)

The city of Nacogdoches had their revised sign ordinance meeting today at their library.

The third meeting in the series covered proper use of signage, banners as well as sign permits.

However, one of the biggest topics discussed was when people hold signs on street corners and sidewalks.

A survey was given at the end of the meeting to allow people to vote on what they felt fits best for the Oldest Town in Texas.

Nacogdoches planning director Larissa Philpot said it’s vital to have feedback from citizens.  

"An important part of a sign ordinance is how signs affect the aesthetics of a town and so the survey allows the community in a way vote on the aesthetics of the signs that would be allowed in Nacogdoches." Philpot said.

The hope is to adopt some new amendments to the city sign ordinance in hopes of making commercial signage more clear for Nacogdoches residents.
