Signs versus murals

Posted by Jeremy Shulkin

As the city council praised and voted to advertise the new sign ordinance on Tuesday (the actual vote to pass it will come April 26) Worcester Wired takes a look at how it will impact the Worcester Mural Arts project  (an initiative we wrote about in February).

From WW:

In cases where the group would paint over an existing mural, they wouldn’t need to apply for a special permit, however, unless they were enlarging the mural and the new size exceeded limits placed into the new ordinance. But at Weintraub’s, that’s likely what they’ll need to do.

  1. -Q

    NEW SIGN ORDINANCE VIOLATES PROTECTED FREE SPEECH IN OUR CITY of WORCESTER!
    The city council is on the verge of taking away from homeowners, residents and taxpayers the right to express free speech on their own taxpaying property.Under the new prposed ordinance private property owners will only be allowed to install on house/on lawn a measly total 62sq.ft. of signage.
    To include only one 4’x8′ and the rest of the signs cannot exceed 32 sq.ft.
    There is no way in hell I will allow this city council to further erode our Constitutional rights nor will I abide by this serious assault on my rights as a property owner. I will put up as many political signs above and beyond what the ordinance unlawfully requires.
    With this in mind I challenge the city manager and the city council to actually enforce this outright and blatant violation of our Constitutional rights…………I look forward to filing the upcoming class action lawsuit against the City of Worcester, the city manager and the antiquated city council for having the gall and audacity to tell me or any other taxpaying property owner what we can and cannot post on our properties!
    ANY CITY COUNCILOR VOTING IN FAVOR OF THIS ORDINANCE IS ANTI-AMERICAN AND SHOULD BE VOTED OUT COME NOVEMBER!
