ORDINANCE NO. BL2011-30
An Ordinance amending Chapter 17.40 of the Metropolitan Code to prohibit the conversion of nonconforming static billboards to tri-face billboards, all of which is more particularly described herein (Proposal No. 2011Z-016TX-001).
WHEREAS, tri-face billboards are potentially more distracting to motorists than static billboards, and have a more intensive impact on the surrounding community; and
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Council recognizes that Tennessee Code Annotated § 13-7-208 provides certain protections to nonconforming uses; and
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Council desires to allow nonconforming static billboards to continue to be used as such in accordance with Tennessee Code Annotated § 13-7-208, but to clarify that static billboards are separate structures from tri-face billboards.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That Title 17 of the Code of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, Zoning Regulations, is hereby amended by amending Section 17.40.690 by adding the following provision as a new subsection at the end thereof:
“A nonconforming static billboard shall not be altered, modified, converted, changed, or replaced to result in the billboard becoming a tri-face billboard as defined in section 17.04.060. Static billboards and tri-face billboards shall be considered separate structures.”
Section 2. That this Ordinance shall take effect five (5) days from and after its passage and such change be published in a newspaper of general circulation, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
