NEBWERRY — The City of Newberry Council is working to amend an ordinance to limit the size of LED signs.
The Light Emitting Diodes (LED) signs in the city would be limited to the commercial and industrial zoning areas. This would limit the signage to the Wilson Road and Highway 219 areas.
Also, businesses would only be allowed to have one LED sign
The city leaders also agreed in a vote on the ordinance to limit the size of the signs to no greater than 32-square-feet and a single dimension of no bigger than four-feet by eight-feet in length.
Currently there are only two LED signs in the city limits at Title Max and Sonic on Wilson Road, but the new Piedmont Technical College campus plans to have an LED sign at its front entrance.
