Mauldin City Council passed the first vote needed for an ordinance that would change what signs are allowed to be used by local businesses.

If approved, signs will not be allowed to be attached to poles and there would be new size restrictions based on where the sign is located and how the property is zoned. Existing businesses would be grandfathered in to the new ordinance, which would make it affect new businesses.

The proposed ordinance is aimed at reducing the number of signs advertising along the city's roads and toward helping businesses market their products. The Mauldin Planning Commission has already recommended the ordinance but is also worried whether the city has enough people to enforce it.

A second reading is required to approve the proposed ordinance. However, some new amendments could be added in before the next meeting, official said at Monday night's meeting.
