RESOLUTION
title
C/S Amending The Coors Corridor Plan As It Relates To Prohibited Signs (Sanchez)
body
AMENDING THE COORS CORRIDOR PLAN AS IT RELATES TO PROHIBITED SIGNS.
WHEREAS, the City Council adopted the Coors Corridor Plan (CCP) in 1984 and amended it in 1989, 1995 and 2003; and
WHEREAS, the Council has the authority to amend Sector Plans, Corridor Plans and other land-use regulations; and
WHEREAS, the CCP establishes development regulations designed to protect the scenic resources of the areas along Coors Boulevard; and
WHEREAS, CCP Issue 4, Section d., bullet 1 prohibits the use of banners, pennants and other forms of non-permanent or portable signs in order to encourage a more aesthetically pleasing environment on the corridor; and
WHEREAS, a structure fire on Coors Boulevard near Sequoia Rd. NW has caused several businesses to have to relocate to new, but nearby locations; and
WHEREAS, this type of forced relocation due to fire presents challenges for businesses that rely upon their location as part of their success; and
WHEREAS, businesses that are forced to relocate due to a fire or other type of non-self-inflicted damage to their location could benefit from an opportunity to install temporary signage directing patrons to their new locations for a limited period of time; and
WHEREAS, banner signs printed on vinyl and similar materials are increasingly used by new or relocated businesses as they await fabrication of formal, permanent signs that meet the requirements of the CCP and the Zoning Code; and
WHEREAS, providing some limited allowance for temporary signage helps implement City policies for encouraging small business and the use of existing commercial structures.
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL, THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CITY OF ALBUQUERQ...
