Fraser adopts revised Grand Park sign code that was two years in the making

Town of Fraser board member Scotty Brent stood up from his chair Wednesday, May 5, and did a little dance. That was following the board’s 6-1 approval of an amendment to Grand Park’s master sign plan. Discussions over the size, location and number of signs that should be allowed for businesses in the village area of Grand Park have lasted nearly two years.

While not everyone was happy with the outcome (new board member Peggy Smith voted against it), most board members approved of the final modifications that included dividing the total allowable square footage of 3:1 (three square feet of signage to every linear foot of store frontage) between at least two signs with no more than 75 percent going to one sign.

Fraser resident Pat Rupert noticed a last minute omission of a clause that limited freestanding signs to 16 feet in height. That was added back in as a condition to approval.

The board also approved the pre-annexation agreement for Byers Peak Ranch. The agreement sets the guidelines and expectations, particularly with respect to who will cover what costs, for the study of the possible annexation itself.

The pre-annexation agreement does not obligate the town to annex the property.
