Chamber Business Breakfast Focuses On County Sign Code Tuesday, Nov. 17


The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce is inviting chamber members and non-chamber member businesses alike to attend a special Chamber Business Breakfast focused on the County sign code.

Business owners and managers are invited to enjoy breakfast and then roll up their sleeves to review specific sections of the code, 7:30-9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17.

Attendees will be divided into small groups, each assigned a small section of the code to discuss and develop suggestions for how it might be more business friendly. The use of banners, feather signs, monument signs, commercial flags, and electronic signs are all regulated. Permanent signs must be safely mounted on the building façade to protect the public from hazardous conditions that result from signs that are structurally unsafe.

The County revised the sign code in 2012; however, since that time, the establishment of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, the transfer of the ski hill to private ownership and the transition of the Valles Caldera to the National Park Service has created an opportunity for new tourism-related businesses. 

Additionally, the development planning for A-19 and the Village in White Rock have reached the point where signage should be considered. This is an opportunity for businesses to provide valuable input that may be used by county staff, the Manhattan Project National Historical Park Advisory Committee, the White Rock Master Plan Implementation Committee, Planning and Zoning Commission, and possibly County Council in reviewing signage and wayfinding in Los Alamos County.

The breakfast will be held in room 230, building 2, UNM-LA, 4000 University Dr., in Los Alamos.
