City staff is beginning work on a new sign bylaw that it hopes will result in more clarity and consistency.

“We’ve been reviewing signs since I arrived in Revelstoke,” Dean Strachan, the manager of development services, told council. “It’s been a hot button issue for a long time.”

Strachan said they are looking at crafting rules that will be easier to read and more user-friendly.

“The critical portion of a sign bylaw is to balance between the regulation that will allow for the community’s interest to be protected but still allow businesses to be creative and reflect what they’re doing,” he said.

A report to council says the new bylaw updates regulations for awning, window and free standing signs to reflect what already exists in the community

The report, which includes both the proposed new sign bylaw and the old one can be viewed below.
