A. An abandoned sign is a sign which no longer directs, advertises, or identifies a legal business establishment, product or activity on the premises where such sign is displayed. Any sign which becomes an abandoned sign and remains as such for a period of 12 months or more shall be prohibited, and shall be removed by the owner of the sign or owner of the property at his or her expense.
B. Permanent signs applicable to a business temporarily suspended because of a change of ownership or management of such business shall not be deemed abandoned, unless the property remains vacant for a period of 12 months or more. (Ord. 1111, 2018)
