Working within the Pittsboro sign ordinances

Pittsboro, NC - As of today, Monday, October 17, after a personal visit, the Town of Pittsboro Planning Office is going to work with us on our directional signs. We're only allowed to put out one at a time so we'll be swapping between 15-501 and 64.

Sorry if you get confused because you will see them on 64 one day and 15-501 the next. Mr. Bass, the planning director, said he'll see how that goes with the complaints and follow-up with us if there are anymore.

Yes, people are complaining, which is why our signs are being enforced. I still plan to make a statement at the next Board meeting on October 24 at 7 pm..

There are a few off-premise (including directional) signs that aren't being enforced and I plan to question why.

The off-premise signs are exempt for churches, yard sales, non-profits, festivals, one-time things, etc. etc. but when you get down to it, it only leaves businesses that fall under the enforcement and they are only enforced when a complaint is made.

We can't thank you all enough for your continued support.

Please help us spread the word. Shot of 'Spro Mobile Espresso is at 136 Fayetteville Street. The street next to the Pittsboro United Methodist Church (before you get to the courthouse circle). We are easily accessible from Business 64 and 15-501 South (off of Womack St) behind the Pittsboro Fire Department near the ABC store.
