An Ordinance regarding Signage in Odessa will be considered at Monday’s Board of Aldermen meeting.  Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with City Administrator Jon Holmes:

Holmes said the Board has considered the restrictions in the past, but had some flaws to work out before passing the ordinance.

“Clarification on the sizes of signs, and the duration that they could have them out, and then making sure that it wasn’t going to affect our real estate agents that are in our community, and things like that,” said Holmes, “It seemed like some of that stuff wasn’t that clear, and we just wanted to make sure that it didn’t affect them negatively, so we got that taken care of.”

The Board will also consider  extending a moratorium on multi-family residences.  The Planning and Zoning Board started looking at the city’s number of units compared to the national average more than a year ago.  Holmes said they found Odessa has more than the recommended amount of multi-family units, so they recommended the Board of Aldermen stop approving multi-family dwellings for a time.

That meeting gets underway at 7:00 p.m. at the Odessa Community Center.
