Albany-  The Albany City Commission now knows which direction their new sign ordinance should take. Thursday, the Albany Dougherty Planning Commission adopted a new Albany Sign Ordinance.

The new ordinance changes how often signs must be inspected. The change was made once each year, but today the planning commission asked that it be extended to once every eight years. It also sets a uniform frequency for all flashing signs. No matter the sign, the message can't change any quicker than every 15 seconds.

"Most of the signs you see out there now are currently in violation of our existing ordinance so this recommendation will help make those signs or legalize those signs," said Howard brown, Planning Director.

The proposal now goes to The Albany City Commission where it must bee approved before it becomes law. They'll hold a public hearing on the plan March 25th.
