    1. The ARC changes are coming in the form of a resolution and they are supposed to have a public hearing on it. The resolution will be what changes regulations on ARC not the Comp. Plan. There is also a Public Hearing on April 11 that will involve the signs in the county. If BOCC passes this, chain stores will be allowed to have any size sign they want but our local stores will not. ARCs should be involved with this also and help our local stores by asking this not be passed.
