Is This a Sign?


The City of Woodstock has a sign code that controls when and where signs can be posted. The City allows signs. Businesses want and need them. The City will also allow temporary signs, and the business must apply for a permit in order to post them. Generally, I believe the length of time for a temporary sign permit is 60 days.

Does this banner on a semi-trailer constitute a "sign"? This trailer was parked behind the condos when they were under construction, where it was visible from Route 47 as clear advertising for the condos. The City considered the trailer as "in use" because building materials were stored in it.

Now the trailer is parked across Seminary from the front of the condos. There is no question that the sign is a quality sign and one of the nicest temporary signs in town. But it is a sign. Is there a permit for it? When does the permit expire? And is this lot zoned for storage of two semi-trailers?

Are these questions rhetorical? Why not just ask the City? Or are you beseeching the heavens?

We like that 'ol sign. Heck, it reminds us of our ol hometown in the trailer park. Our toothless freinds Daryl and his other brother Daryl and us used to go down yonder to the pond to fish. Yep, those were the good ol' days.

Advocate, hell. You are the King of perseveration! If anybody else gave a crap about this stuff it would probably already have changed. Get over it and yourself. I think you don't really even care about changing things. You give half assed answers filled with incorrect info to your own questions. The only person who wants to listen to your nonsense is YOU!

That sign is a government sign ... its for the State of Illinois' homeless shelter being opened on North Seminary. Forty-five units with up to 7 people in each studio ... my friend Snoozer 3 says he's moving in with his buddy Critter and his pal Cooter. I think Cletus is moving into the garage. Gus, you da' main man! Snoozer

It's a trailer that the company stores materials in. The trailer has a sign on it. Reading the code shows that this is perfectly legal.
