§ 16.72.010  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of this chapter is to establish a framework for a comprehensive system of sign controls governing the display, design, construction, installation, and maintenance of signs that will:
   A.   Promote and protect the health, safety, and welfare of the County by ensuring the compatibility of signs with surrounding land uses.
   B.   Support and encourage the business and economic climate by enhancing and protecting the orderly and effective display of signs.
   C.   Encourage signs that communicate effectively without detracting from the scenic beauty of the countryside.
   D.   Protect the public from hazardous conditions that result from the indiscriminate use and placement of signs, structurally unsafe signs, signs that obscure the vision of pedestrians or motorists, and signs that compete or conflict with necessary traffic signals and warning signs.
