CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Charleston’s City Council has approved the use of projecting signs from some business storefronts.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/23dAxTh) reports the council voted Monday night to allow merchants in downtown Charleston and on the west side to hang projecting signs.

The signs cannot exceed 6 square feet in size and must be between 9 and 12 feet off the ground.

Council member Mary Beth Hoover says the signs will help city businesses become more visible.
