Placer requires signs at planned building sites

Signs should soon be sprouting at properties targeted for development in Placer County.

The county Board of Supervisors approved a new sign requirement Tuesday for development applications due for public hearings before either supervisors or the Planning Commission.

Under the new sign requirement, signage on properties in the development process could be as large as four feet high and eight feet wide. They will provide information on the project as well as contacts to learn more.

Property developers will be responsible for putting the signs up, maintaining them and then taking them down within 30 days of a Planning Commission or Board of Supervisors decision.

The decision was aimed at better notifying nearby residents and concerned citizens about development projects moving through the planning process. The intent of the new requirement is to allow people to participate early in the process.
