October 28, 2009

Last evening the planning commission met right before the council meeting to hold a public forum on the new sign, square footage and driveway ordinance proposed for a council vote.
All signs in Chickasaw must be of a "monument" type (that is to say: near the ground and no more than 50 sq. ft. like the new signs in Mobile). LED electronic signs are fine if they meet certain brightness criteria. There wil be NO "flashing" on and off signs. All new homes must have concrete, brick or paver driveways with sidewalks of the
same to your door. No more asphalt or crushed stone driveways. Most areas of Chickasaw will require building a 1600 sq.
ft. home on your lot with a minimum of 1200 sq. ft. in Norwood and the historic disctrict. Pirates Cove homes will be a minumum of 2,000 sq. ft. The ordinance will be presented by the council
at the next session. This afternoon I will be taking pictures for the city of children carving pumpkins at the civic center. (pictured is planning commission less the mayor who appeared just in time for the vote)
