North Augusta City Council spent a few hours Monday evening talking about signs. 

Libby Hodges, director of Planning and Development for the city, detailed revisions made to the sign regulations in the city's Development Code. 

She mentioned recent legal changes that dictated that sign regulations should be content-neutral and based solely on size and location. 

The changes, which have been signed off on by Planning Commission, preserved much of the same, such as square footage, appearance and placement regulations, but some things were moved around. 

The new language of the code divides sign types into three main sections: residential, non-residential and downtown. 

Allowed in the revised code for downtown would be iconic signs, public art and murals, all of which would have to be approved by City Council. 

Council also discussed the city's wayfinding project, still in the design phase, and considered designs and colors for new signs.

The wayfinding signs will be similar to the current signs in the city that point to parks and other locations. The project will be funded by Capital Projects Sales Tax IV. 

No final decisions were made at the meeting.
