CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Downtown Charleston is one step closer to allow projecting signs from storefronts.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1TQYRJf) the Municipal Planning Commission voted Wednesday to recommend a bill that would amend the city’s zoning ordinance to allow blade signs in the downtown central business district, as well as the urban corridor district on the near West side.

City Planning Director Don Vriendt says a blade sign is mounted on a building facade and geared primarily toward pedestrians.

The bill outlines criteria blade signs must meet. The signs must be between 9 and 12 feet off the ground and must not exceed 3 feet in width and 2 feet in height, among other restrictions.

The bill now goes before the City Council’s Planning Committee for approval before the Council votes on it.
