Hooksett signs: Variances no more?
The town has formed a committee to study the sign ordinance and recommend changes. It is to be a top-to-bottom review. The goal is to come up with an ordinance that makes sense, treats businesses equally, and fits the town.
To see how problematic the ordinance is, just drive down Route 3 and try to read the names of the businesses. The sign sizes are all over the place. Some businesses got variances, some did not. Even some that got variances have signs that are too small to read from the road.
The ordinance has been a pain for businesses and customers for years. It is good to see the town addressing the problem at long last.
