Eagle Point, Ore. — Electronic signs are officially prohibited in the city of Eagle Point but they are allowing for an exemption.
The city council looked at changing city code in December to allow for electronic signs but asked the planning commission to look at the issue again after concerns with the language used.
The exemption allows Eagle Point High School to install an electronic sign after students raised thousands of dollars to buy one.
“We are so happy to be able to encourage and engage our high school students and craft a special language that allows them to put up the electronic sign they raised funds for,” said council president Ruth Jenks.
According to the ordinance, an exemption is allowed for an electronic sign if it is not facing or legible from the street or a neighboring property.
