PROPOSED ALBUQUERQUE SIGN ORDINANCE IS BAD FOR BUSINESS!
Most Existing Business Signs Will Become Illegal Under the New
The City of Albuquerque is proposing a new sign ordinance that will
require most existing business signage to be taken down at the
owner's expense and any replacement sign would be smaller signs
conforming to stipulations as put forth in the 80 page draft ordinance.
All pole signs would be illegal. For most businesses, exterior
stand alone signs will be limited to five foot tall or shorter
"monument signs." The ordinance would apply to all
franchise and corporate signs and would result in the vast majority being
nonconforming to the new ordinance. The proposed 80 pages or
regulations is an extreme attempt to diminish the rights of
businessmen and women to promote their business. Businesses who have made
investments in their signage will see these investments erased and
these businesses will be burdened with tearing down existing signage
and replacing signage to conform to the drasticly restrictive new
