The requirements set forth in this Article shall be complied with in addition to any other general or specific
requirements of this Chapter. The regulations of this section shall apply to all signs and sign structures erected,
placed and/or maintained within the County, except as otherwise noted. The standards set forth in this Article are
established in order to: (1) allow for the legitimate needs for identification of activities and commerce within the
County; (2) improve the aesthetic quality of the County; (3) reduce intrusions on adjacent property; (4) protect
property values; and (5) minimize undue distraction to motorists. These requirements in no way relieve a sign of
having to meet all local, state and federal laws pertaining to the erection of that sign.
