Thomasville City Council proposes a new sign ordinance

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Local business owners in Thomasville are hoping that their signs won't have to go down any further.

Thomasville City Council proposed an ordinance a few years ago to restrict the height and square footage of signs... and now business owners say the height may be reduced 12 feet lower than what it originally was.

Bart Williams, co-owner of Williams Electric Service and Signs said, "It limited us because we started off with 150 sq ft. 20 ft tall, and they reduced it to 60 sq ft. 10 ft tall and now the proposed ordinance will reduce it even further to 48 sq ft. and 8 ft tall."

But there is good news for local business owners, electronic message boards and LED lighting are in consideration by the Thomasville City Council, and family business owner Bart Williams says he's thankful for that.


"They didn't want to allow the electronic message centers such as what you see at gas stations for their prices and like what you would see at convenience stores. The planning and zoning recommended Monday night that those things would be allowed in a limited use which we felt was a very positive move for us," said Williams.
