The Cape Charles Town Council will hold a special meeting Thursday September 3rd to move forward with the removal of the Oyster Farm sign from town property.
In March of 2016, the Oyster Farm received permission from the town to erect the wooden sign at Fig and Randolph. This month, at a Town Council work session, during the discussion regarding interim wayfinding signs,
the issue of private businesses placing their own signs on the corner of Fig Street and Randolph Avenue was brought up by a Council member, asking how the Town could permit one business could put up a sign at the intersection and adding that other businesses would like to have their signs at the location as well.
At the work session, Town Council will also receive public comment
regarding amendments to the Ordinance creating the Joint Industrial Development Authority of Northampton County and Towns which was originally adopted in February 2000. The proposed amendments will change the name of the authority to the Economic Development Authority of Northampton County and Towns.
