Sign ordinance change would allow advertising on Carson bus shelters

The Carson City Board of Supervisors is set for a short meeting Thursday when they will take up a section of the sign ordinance involving signs of city bus shelters.

The proposed amendment will allow advertising displays about four feet wide and six feet tall to be attached to existing or future transit shelters which are already positioned in the public right-of-way as an amenity to transit customers.

The amendment will give Carson City Regional Transportation Commission the ability to sell advertising on passenger shelters for the purposes of generating income which will partially offset the operating subsidy being contributed by Carson City to support the Jump Around Carson transit system.

Signs on any structure within the public right-of-way are prohibited at this time.

In other matters supervisors:

• Will hear a quarterly business review for the scorecard period ending Sept. 30 concerning revised performance measures for the objective, "Families in need are offered short-term assistance and provided resources to become self-supportive."

• Will present a proclamation for National Parental Involvement Day.

The Carson City Board of Supervisors meets at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the Sierra Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St. Go to to download an agenda and a complete information packet.
