Business sign ordinance to be repealed and replaced

Cranberry's last major sign ordinance was written in 1995. It made extensive use of tables to connect building size, zoning, sign size, sign materials, illumination features and more into elegant grids. Problem was, they not only confused business owners trying to figure out what was expected of them, it baffled the Township's own staff. So, over the past 18 months, the code was completely rewritten to clarify its terms, improve its organization, and provide visual support for its definitions. At its December 7 meeting, Cranberry's Board of Supervisors accepted public testimony on the revised ordinance and agreed to consider final action at its December 14 meeting.
