From Press of Atlantic City: Municipal officials said they plan to update township sign ordinances, following a judge’s ruling last month that struck down the Margate Causeway billboard and threw hundreds of other signs into legal limbo.
The biggest proposed change would explicitly outlaw electronic signs in marine-commercial zones, Mayor James “Sonny” McCullough said. The township would also limit billboard heights in that zone to 25 feet.
The proposed changes all but ban the controversial 60-foot LED billboard, which went up in a marine-commercial zone along the Margate Causeway in late March 2012. The pulsating sign ran until June 2012, when legal challenges pulled the plug.
