Ordinance 2016-69 Of The City Council Of The City Of Orlando, Florida, Relating To Signs; Amending Chapter 64, Orlando City Code, To Provide That Certain Privately Owned Venues May Qualify As A Regional Facility For Purposes Of Sign Approval Under Section 64.320, Orlando City Code


The proposed ordinance will amend City  Code Section 64.320—Regional Public Facility Identification Signage.

The existing code recognizes the importance and special position of such buildings as they serve the greater metropolitan area and tourist population. Accordingly, it provides for additional signage for regional public landmarks beyond that allowed for other uses such as commercial establishments. Only publicly-owned facilities are currently eligible.

The version considered by the MPB required any privately owned facility to have seating for at least 25,000 people.  The attached version requires seating for at least 20,000 people to better reflect the needs of the professional soccer stadium. Finally, the amendment stipulates that the section applies only to facilities within the downtown CRA,whether publicly or privately owned.

City Council approved the item on first reading on September 15, 2016.
