This ordinance would allow these type signs in residential zoning districts for property located on collector and arterial streets [arterial streets are those leading off of main intersections; collector streets are those that branch off from arterial streets] .... It is important to point out that individual sections of the same road may be classified differently. A complete list of all sections of roadway in Excel format can be emailed by the council office to members of council upon request. The full list is approximately 290 pages.
The analysis also has a "short list" of affected streets. Here are North End streets listed that are eligible for LED signs should Tygard's bill pass third reading:
- 8TH AVE N [Rosa Parks]
- BUCHANAN ST
- GARFIELD ST
- JEFFERSON ST
- METROCENTER BLVD [Rosa Parks]
There are streets on the list located in more affluent neighborhoods (like Belle Meade Boulevard or Blair Boulevard or Belmont Boulevard) that I have a hard time believing will stay on this list if their residents and Council Members have anything to do with it. We need to make sure that Erica Gilmore fights for our quality of life, too.
UPDATE: Strike Belle Meade Boulevard. I am told that no Belle Meade streets would be eligible for LED signs because the Belle Meade zoning code would prevent it. I don't think that Salemtown has such codes.
