Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

Amends GS 136-128 by adding and defining the term sign location or site to mean a location or site of an outdoor advertising sign measure to the closest 1/100th of a mile, in conformance with the Department of Transportation methods of measurement for all State roads.

Amends proposed GS 136-131.3 by adding that any off-premises outdoor advertising sign that is legally existing but would not be conforming to customary use if it was relocated on the same sign location or site can be relocated on the same sign location or site so long as: (1) the structural members of the sign at the relocated site are of like material; (2) the size of the sign face or faces are not increased; and (3) the height of the sign at the relocated site does not exceed 80 feet measured from the adjoining road grade or base of the sign, whichever allows for greatest visibility, except that a sign may be 50 feet above the top of a sound wall or noise barrier constructed between the sign and the main-traveled way. Makes conforming changes.
