Public Hearing to Change Sign Ordinance Approaches

The Londonderry Commerce and Visitors Center (CVC) and its director Kathy Wagner will advocate for local businesses Wednesday, June 5, 2013 during the Town’s Planning Board Public Hearing. For months, Wagner has been working with the Town to change an ordinance which does not allow businesses to display stand-alone signs on the sidewalks outside their businesses.

After discussing the current sign ordinance with members of the CVC, Wagner approached the Planning Department last fall to address their concerns. Since then she has been campaigning to change the ordinance; if approved, it will allow businesses to display standard size “A”-frame and sandwich-board style signs outside.

“These local businesses, especially ones that may be struggling, need as much foot traffic as they can get,” explained Wagner. “To be able to promote things like their daily dinner specials, clothing sales, or deals of the week can greatly help attract new customers and give them a platform to advertise inexpensively.”

Wagner said the CVC is asking area businesses to attend the Wednesday hearing. “This hearing is essential for getting the ordinance to change,” said Wagner. “We’re hoping a good number of Londonderry businesses come out and speak up; tell the Planning Board why this ordinance needs to change.”

The Planning Board hearing is open to the public; residents and business owners are welcome to attend. It will start at 7 PM in the Moose Hill Council Chambers at Londonderry Town Hall. Those that are not able to attend are encouraged to write a position letter to the Planning Board, which must clearly state “Please read into the record.” Letters can be sent to the Planning Board Chair Arthur Rugg at 268B Mammoth Road, Londonderry, NH 03053 or emailed to jtrottier(at)londonderrynh.org.

Now, visitors can learn anything and everything about Londonderry without feeling frustrated and spending hours on the web.”
