Cape looks to revise sign regulations
The city of Cape Coral is again looking at its sign ordinance with new regulations targeting both sign-wavers on public rights-of-way and the amount of signage in windows – something many small businesses, especially those in the downtown Community Redevelopment Agency district, say could force them to move or go out of business.
Those business owners wasted little time in expressing their dismay Monday, starting with public input before the measure even reached the formal discussion point on the City Council agenda.
“The entrance to my business is in the back, and I need A-frame signs so people can find me,” said Trisha Campbell, owner of Best Pets pet groomers. “Why is it all or nothing? Small businesses have limited budgets.”
