All window signage shall comply with the following requirements:
(A) Decals indicating store acceptance of charge cards or affiliations with organizations may be affixed to the window glass or door glass. No decal shall be larger than 40 square inches.
(B) Vinyl lettering depicting the name, address and telephone number of the business may be located on the door glass, provided that the lettering does not cover more than 20% of the total of all door glass within which the lettering is placed. For purposes of this provision, where the entry doors consist of double frame door units (or other multi-frame units), the total of all door glass shall be measured based upon the total glass within each door frame unit.
(C) The total amount of window signage shall not be greater than 25% of the total window area of the business when visible from the principal street.
(D) Not more than one window sign shall be located within a window.
(E) For multiple occupant buildings, the preceding regulations apply to each occupant.
(F) In any event, no such window or door signage shall be placed in such a manner as to impede the ability for public safety (police or fire) officers to see into the premises. In determining whether or not any window (or door) sign is an impediment to public safety officers, the enforcement official for this chapter may seek the opinion of the appropriate chief public safety official. A written ruling of the chief public safety official shall be final in determining the extent and placement of window signage, not withstanding any other provisions of this section.
