The Greenville City Council has amended its sign code to update regulations for prohibited off-premise signs.
The changes are for non-profit organizations wanting to erect temporary signs to promote events. The ordinance now allows those signs, has a time limit the signs can be up, and designates locations where they are allowed.
City Manager Dave Willey said the action was taken after a meeting was held with representatives of several non-profit groups.
Several different organizations spoke at the meeting. The locations where signs are allowed were not changed, but the time limit was changed from 14 to 15 days.
