(Lee Plemel, lplemel@carson.org) 

Staff Summary: The proposed ordinance is intended to clarify sign regulations for medical marijuana establishments and marijuana establishments by adding the sign standards directly into the regulations pertaining to such establishments rather than referring to sign standards elsewhere in the city code. The proposed ordinance would continue to limit signs for medical marijuana establishments and marijuana establishments to a size consistent with office uses, which is less than the sign area allowed for other retail uses, and it would also clarify that each business at a given location is entitled to a certain amount of sign area.

Freestanding flags and A-frame signs are prohibited, except that A-frame signs not exceeding 32 inches in width and 36 inches in height (with other restrictions) are permitted within the Downtown Mixed-Use zoning district.
