Bluffton Explores Sign Solutions

BLUFFTON, S.C. -

The Town of Bluffton is creating a new sign program as a solution to Old Town businesses requesting a way to advertise that wont violate laws.

The drama spurred at the end of last summer when the town rounded up hundreds of signs around that were deemed a "violation" to the town's sign ordinance. This round-up angered some local businesses, who pushed for a plan that would allow them some type of advertising.

And now the town has what they say could be a solution.

The Town will now have a directional sign program.Businesses are invited to apply to be a part of this program on a first-come, first serve basis.

"We want to be partners in the success of our local merchants," Mayor Lisa Sulka said.

 "This program offers a partnership in their success while keeping the historic district safe and aesthetically pleasing."

The Town will erect and maintain the sign panels at various locations throughout and adjacent to the Historic District.
