Last night we presented Troy resident, Alec Peeples (Keep Troy Beautiful) and the City of Troy with Scenic Hero Awards! Thanks to good community organizing (following the permitting of 5 digital billboards in Troy) and a responsive City Council, the City of Troy adopted a new sign ordinance in 2018…
Billboards and Sign Control
A community with too many signs, signs that are too large, have too much motion, too many flashing lights, are in poor locations, are too small to read, or are so large they are overpowering, is a community that not only functions poorly (there is too much clutter, making wayfinding, instruction and identification difficult), but also looks bad. If a community looks bad, then it is a less desirable place to be—to live, work or invest in.
Scenic Michigan is interested in helping local communities developing sign ordinances that enhance community aesthetics and protect the health, safety, and welfare of residents.
