A yield sign in Marlborough

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 12, 2007 12:09 PM


A controversial sign ordinance has been tabled by the Marlborough City Council after weeks of criticism from the business community.

The ordinance called for free-standing business signs to be phased out gradually in favor of smaller, shorter signs made from wood or wood-like material. Internally lit signs were to be replaced by remotely lit versions.

"It just was missing so many pieces and it still needs work," said Susanne Morreale-Leeber, president and CEO, Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce. "I'm pleased that it's tabled at this time. I think the business community should weigh in more heavily on it."
