Signs of discord prompt Marlborough showdown

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 26, 2007 10:34 AM


With the City Council and the business community at an impasse over a draft sign ordinance, the council's Urban Affairs Committee called for a public hearing Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. at City Hall.

The proposed ordinance calls for existing free-standing business signs to be phased out gradually in favor of smaller, shorter signs made from wood or wood-like material. The Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce has complained that it’s too restrictive and will force most businesses to spend a lot of money to comply.
