Is This a Sign?

Emerson Lofts Sign


The City of Woodstock has a sign code that controls when and where signs can be posted. The City allows signs. Businesses want and need them. The City will also allow temporary signs, and the business must apply for a permit in order to post them. Generally, I believe the length of time for a temporary sign permit is 60 days.

Does this banner on a semi-trailer constitute a "sign"? This trailer was parked behind the condos when they were under construction, where it was visible from Route 47 as clear advertising for the condos. The City considered the trailer as "in use" because building materials were stored in it.

Now the trailer is parked across Seminary from the front of the condos. There is no question that the sign is a quality sign and one of the nicest temporary signs in town. But it is a sign. Is there a permit for it? When does the permit expire? And is this lot zoned for storage of two semi-trailers?
