The Rappahannock County Zoning Ordinance discusses temporary signs in Article XII Signs — § 170-102. The “No Bike Trail” signs fit the definition of temporary (§ 170-93), are not political (§ 170-102D), and have been displayed for more than thirty days (§170-102A).
They should come down.
On Sept. 17, 2018, I asked the Zoning Administrator if she agreed. She has not responded.
Page Glennie is executive director of Rappahannock Citizens for Community Empowerment (RCCE). I asked Page by email whether RCCE had anything to do with the signs. He said no.
Page was seen handing out “No Bike Trail” signs, I assume as a private citizen, not as a representative of RCCE.
The RCCE website says its “purposes and aims are to . . . increase knowledge, understanding, and respect [for]” the Rappahannock County Zoning Ordinance.
I encourage Mr. Glennie and RCCE to demonstrate their own knowledge, understanding, and respect for the Zoning Ordinance by encouraging the public to remove the signs.
