Sign Ordinance Rewrite Project

Last Updated: 11/05/2018

The City of High Point is Updating the Sign Regulations and we need your input!

In June 2018, City Council approved the hiring of Cooper Consulting Company to assist the City in updating and modernizing the City's sign regulations.  Although amended, the sign regulations have not been completely rewritten since 1992.  The current Development Ordinance which was rewritten and adopted in 2016 did not include a rewrite of the sign regulations, they were only reformatted to match the rest of the Development Ordinance.

The goals of the rewrite are to create user-friendly regulations through simplified language and graphics to illustrate the regulations wherever possible.  The consultants started their work with a review and assessment of the current regulations and all of text amendments that have been made since 1992.  They conducted stakeholder group interviews with targeted interest groups in August and October and solicited public input through a questionnaire in November. The consultants will take the input they received and draft an assessment of the current ordinance and recommendations for the new ordinance. The assessment is tentatively scheduled to be available for public review in early 2019.
