August 22, 2008|By JENNIFER FITCH

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - After months of debate, the final decision took only minutes as the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday approved portions of the borough where electronic signs will be allowed.

"We've had meetings, hearings, discussion. It's on the agenda for your consideration," Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger told the council moments before its decision.

The signs are not to exceed 32 square feet or be put within 20 feet of an intersection, according to the new ordinance.

The signs will be allowed for properties on the west side of South Potomac Street. They also will be permitted on the south side of East Main Street.

Both are restricted to the general commercial district. That will encompass the Red Roof Storage business on South Potomac Street, the South Potomac Street Shopping Center, CVS Pharmacy and the Waynesboro Mall.

The council was told by its solicitor that signs must be permitted somewhere in the borough. Otherwise, the outright prohibition could be challenged in court.
