Skip Navigation LinksHome » News » News Article

November 13, 2017 - ​The City of Ann Arbor is updating its sign ordinance to include new and innovative sign standards that reflect evolving technologies and approaches as well as a general update of sign regulations. During the planning process, which will last about a year, the city will work with project consultant Giffels Webster. The consultant will be seeking feedback from the following groups at regularly scheduled meetings:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 14, 7–8 p.m., Larcom City Hall, second floor, City Council chambers, 301 E. Huron St., Ann Arbor, 48104.

  • Thursday, Nov. 16, 7–8 p.m., at the Historic District Commission Meeting, Larcom City Hall, second floor City Council chambers, 301 E. Huron St., Ann Arbor, 48104.

  • Wednesday, Dec. 13, 9–10 a.m., at the DDA Meeting, 150 S. Fifth Ave., Ann Arbor, 48104.

Also, the consultant has set up an online feedback platform called PictureThis™ to better understand how residents and business owners think the current sign ordinance is working and what may need work. As they are out and about in Ann Arbor, the city urges the public to look for the signs they view as particularly effective and attractive — or conversely — ineffective. Images can be submitted to PictureThis™ from any internet browser via phone, tablet or computer by clicking the blue "what do you think?" button once on the PictureThis™ site.
