MOUNT OLIVE -- The Mount Olive Planning Board approved a proposed ordinance Tuesday that would puts new limits on business signs in town if eventually passed by town commissioners.
The ordinance would prohibit off-premises signs within the town limits or its extra-territorial jurisdiction promoting businesses.
The ordinance would not include direction signs less than 20 square feet in size, political signs, highway or historic markers.
Planning board members said the intent of the proposal is to improve the appearance of the town.
It would have to be approved by the Mount Olive Town Commission to become effective.
