The Oro Valley Town Council plans to vote on the long-debated temporary sign code, on Wednesday, Jan. 19.

A recommendation from town staff suggests the council should allow the previously decided waiver to temporary business signs to expire on Feb. 1.

Businesses that were able to demonstrate some sort of financial hardship that a relaxation of sign standards could help were able to apply for a permitted use of previously banned temporary signs for the period from Aug. 2 to Feb. 1.

During that period the town issued 35 such permits to area businesses.

The council also plans to discuss and possibly vote on a proposed environmentally sensitive lands ordinance.

The ordinance would apply to biologically significant areas, hillside, mountainous terrain, cultural resources, and scenic resources.

The proposed change to Oro Valley zoning code has been discussed in the town since at least 1996.

Town planning staff recommends the council pass the ordinance.

The council meets Wednesday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. at 11000 N. La Cañada Drive.
