City Council bucks planning board, agrees to 50-percent window signage


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington City Council voted Tuesday night to allow 50-percent sign coverage of windows of downtown business. The planning commission originally wanted to allow only 25-percent coverage, but the city ultimately sided with business owners who wanted more.

The new ordinance only applies to downtown businesses. All other businesses in the city must follow the 10-percent allowance specified in the original ordinance.

The 50-percent coverage only applies to posters or flyers attached to the windows, and does not include any signage that is near the windows.
