Document Description
A Development Code amendment (DCA16-00002) of the city of Hesperia to allow freeway signs between 60 and 100 feet in height along the I-15 freeway. This is in addition to other on premise signs currently permitted for commercial or industrial development. Such signs must serve developments of at least 35 contagious acres and no more than two signs would be permitted per development. The revised sign regulations would also remove the city's pylon sign program, adopted in 2014, as recent Caltrans decisions on these signs regard them as billboards and would not permit their construction as required by the city's pylon sign regulations. In addition, the city's current requirement to allow any business within the city to advertise does not comport with the State's definition of an on premise sign.
