      (2)   On-site residential signs for multi-family structures shall not exceed 20 square feet in area.
      (3)   On-site residential signs shall also include signs that identify a residential development by name or give similar notice to identify a residential area or neighborhood. Each residential area or development shall be limited to a maximum of two permanent signs per principal entrance to the residential development. The maximum total sign area shall be 100 square feet for each development and individual signs shall not exceed a maximum height of six feet when the sign is located outside the front setback area and four feet when the sign is within the front setback area. These signs shall not advertise the sales of parcels or homes.
   (b)   Nonresidential On-Site Signs in Residential, Agricultural, and Conservation Land Use Zoning Districts.  When a nonresidential use is allowed within a residential, agricultural, or conservation land use zoning district, the use may be accompanied by one unlighted single or double faced sign not to exceed six feet in height or 12 square feet in area, for each 60 feet of street frontage and not to exceed a maximum of 24 square feet in total area.
