Can I have a sandwich board sign in lieu of a ground sign?
Business establishments within DMX, NMX, and RMX districts may instead be permitted a single sandwich board sign to be placed on the sidewalk adjacent to the front of the individual business or on the brick paved area providing such a location does not pose a safety hazard. A sandwich board sign is an A-frame or inverted V-shape sign which is portable and usually double-sided. This sign must comply with Section 46-1 of the City Code and must not exceed four feet in height or eight square feet in area per side of sign.

Business establishments located in the Times Arcade Alley may also be permitted to collectively place one such sign near the West Main Street alleyway entrance in the brick paved area, providing such a location does not pose a safety hazard and providing further that the sign is removed at the end of each day when the last business in the Times Arcade Alley closes.
