Public Hearing Yard Signs Are Coming Soon

The City of Bexley will begin using yard signs to help notify residents of public hearings pertaining to property variances and architectural review issues being heard before the Board of Zoning Appeals, Planning Commission, or Bexley City Council.  This is fairly common practice among suburbs in central Ohio, and in fact the City has been using yard signs for demolition hearings for many years.  The blue signs will provide the date and time of the hearing, the general topic of the hearing, and a website link for detailed application information.  The signs will begin to be used for hearings occuring in October of 2012 and beyond.
