New Enforcement Efforts For Signs And Outdoor Displays

Big Bear Lake, CA, April 18, 2013 – Earlier this year the Big Bear Lake City Council received a presentation regarding the implementation of a “City Wide” Code Enforcement program tailored to address specific code violations that significantly detract from the overall appearance of the City. Issues were identified and most of the discussion centered around the New Sign Ordinance adopted by the City Council last year and the effort to begin enforcing the new requirements. Since the initial public meeting in January the City Council has reaffirmed enforcement efforts by ensuring the program is focused on fairness and equity across the community. The City continued its enforcement efforts throughout the month of March by presenting information about the program to the business community. All of these awareness efforts have been in preparation of the enforcement activities that began on April 15.  Enforcement will be “City Wide”, and will address illegal signage and property use issues.  If non-compliant issues are identified, business contacts will have the opportunity to work with the Planning Department prior to the May 16 re-inspections.  Additionally, enforcement efforts will continue through the summer with meetings with City departments to gain compliance....
