The Transylvania County Board of Commissioners will conduct a public hearing on both the Sign Control Ordinance of Transylvania County

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
The Transylvania County Board of Commissioners will conduct a public hearing on both the Sign Control Ordinance of Transylvania County and Scenic Corridor Designation Ordinance of Transylvania County. The Transylvania County Planning Board has reviewed and proposed changes to the Sign Control Ordinance to ensure compliance following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling (Reed v. Town of Gilvert, AZ, 2015) that signs cannot be regulated based on content. The Planning Board is also proposing other changes to improve the Ordinance. The Scenic Corridor Designation Ordinance is closely associated with the Sign Control Ordinance because sign regulations can vary for signs located on scenic corridors. The proposed changes are designed to help ensure compliance with State law while meeting the needs of the community.

    The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will necessarily be a multi-year undertaking. The Summer of 2017 through the Spring of 2018 will be used as the public launching of the Campaign. By engaging in highly publicized civil disobedience and direct action over a 6-week period in at least 25 states and the District of Columbia during the Spring of 2018, the Campaign will force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, poverty, militarism and environmental devastation during a key election year while strengthening and connecting informed and committed grassroots leadership in every state, increasing their power to continue this fight long after June 2018.
