Seguin getting tougher on electronic signs

SEGUIN – The Main Street Advisory Board voted Monday to recommend additions to the city’s ordinance regulating electronic signs in the Downtown Historic District.

While the citywide ordinance regulating electronic signs requires them to be monument signs except along Interstate 10, the recommended addition for the ordinance regulating signs in the Downtown Historic District says: “The components or sections of a monument sign shall not contain an electronic sign.”

The recommended additions to the sign ordinance also are more restrictive regarding the size of electronic signs. Such signs are limited to 32 square feet citywide except for 100 square feet along Interstate 10.
