City to launch sign code education campaign

   WOODINVILLE--The City of Woodinville will launch an education campaign for the Woodinville business community and sign permit applicants on its new sign code. The campaign will include a presentation to the Woodinville Chamber of Commerce on August 11. Brochures highlighting the sign code will be distributed as well as information on an enforcement campaign focused on voluntary compliance.
   "We will begin our enforcement program by conducting an inventory of non-complying signs," said Stephanie Cleveland, city planner. "We will then provide the sign and/or property owner with the applicable regulations and work collaboratively to resolve any violations." She believes the effort will be ongoing for some time.
   Copies of the sign code are available upon request by calling (425) 489-2754, ext. 253.
