Prohibited: No person shall park any motor vehicle or trailer on public or private property so as to be seen from the public right-of-way which has attached thereto or located thereon any sign for the purpose of advertising a product or directing people to a business activity, except in the course of normal business operations or as permitted as a free standing sign.
Prohibited: No flashing, blinking, rotating or flickering signs shall be permitted in any district.

This does not include customary and incidental use of signs or logos on commercial vehicles used as such in normal business operations.

The proposed sign regulation changes was discussed at the Thursday, August 19 P&Z meeting. At that time, the board decided to table their vote to give the public more time to be aware of the proposed changes. The P&Z board will vote on these proposed amendments at their next meeting on Thursday, September 16, at 6:30 PM in the Commissioners meeting room of the Sublette County Courthouse in Pinedale.
