Are Municipalities Flexible on Size Limitations?


#1

Hi Frank,

After reviewing the ordinances of the towns allowing billboards in my area, many of them limit the size to just 300 sq ft along major highways. Although this is doable, a standard 14’ x 48’ bulletin would be much more preferable.

In your experience, have you found municipalities to be lenient when it comes to strict limitations such as size, height, or setback requirements? Do you have a particular strategy when approaching the zoning board for a variance?

Thanks,
-Ben
