Billboard Moratorium possible in Ashe PDF Print
Thursday, 11 October 2007 21:51

Ashe County Commissioners could impose a moratorium of up to 90 days on new billboards in the county.

A public hearing on the issue is planned for after their regular meeting Monday at 5 p.m. Commissioners have received widespread criticism of the number of billboards going up around the county. Some say the billboards negatively impact views and scenery in Ashe. The county would use the 90 days to develop ordinances to regulate billboards. Currently, all that’s required is a building permit from the county. The meeting starts at 3:30, to be followed by the public hearing at 5 p.m.
