Officials in Wheeling are looking to put a stop to the various plastic signs on the side of the road or at an intersection advertising just about anything.
The signs are usually promoting politicians, events, or organizations. However, a proposed ordinance in the city, make such signs a thing of the past.
Thanks to a 2015 Supreme Court decision in Arizona, local governments were no longer able to restrict what kind of signs can be placed in the right of way.
The ordinance is up for public discussion at the Wheeling Planning Commission meeting on March 2.
City officials say if the ordinance is passed, you won’t be able to put signs along U.S. 40 anymore. However, you will be able to put them in your front yard, as long as it’s on your own private property.
