St. Cloud considers ban on portable neon signs

June 9, 2008

ST. CLOUD, Minn. - The neon-colored, portable signs that advertise things like limousine rental and spa specials could be banned in St. Cloud.

Officials are thinking about the ban after residents complained that they're garish and don't give a positive view of the community.

St. Cloud's community planner questions whether the black signs with bright-colored lettering are welcoming to visitors, and whether they're consistent with the image the city wants to achieve.

It isn't the first time officials have talked about banning the signs. It's controversial, because a lot of small business owners say the signs are their best way of advertising.
