A POPULAR FORM OF ADVERTISING IS NOW ILLEGAL IN CAPE CORAL.

TONIGHT CITY COUNCIL VOTED TO BAN BUSINESSES FROM USING FEATHER BANNERS -

AND MADE STRICTER RULES ON OTHER TYPES OF SIGNS.

NBC2'S LAURA ROBERTS EXPLAINS WHY SOME SAY THESE NEW RULES ARE NOT JUST UNFAIR, BUT UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Return to index of stories...


CAPE SIGN ORDINANCE-BNR-PKG


You'll find these signs waving all over the city.

They're called feather banners.

Now those banners -- are banned in Cape Coral

Cape Coral resident

08:26 08:30

how do businesses survive? they survive by advertising

It's one of several controversial changes to the city's sign ordinance passed by council tonight.

The only exception to the feather banner rule are model homes.

Those types of businesses are allowed to have up to four banners on their property.

Richard Leon

Cape Council

15:43 15:48

if we're going to allow one business to have them, we need to allow all businesses to have them

Council members Richard Leon and Jim Burch were the only votes against the new rules -

after public comment.

Some argued the ordinance was unconstitutional - a violation of free speech.

Julie G'Vitale

Cape Coral

26:57 27:01

They are restricting signs based on the content ---

27:15 27:23

Under the first amendment right you can not restrict speech by the content

Other new rules include limiting businesses to just one "A" frame sign - during business hours only.

Businesses also can not cover more than 50-percent of their windows and doors with signs.

This comes after sign wavers were made illegal in Cape Coral.

Mayor Marni Sawicki says it's a compromise - that's taken two years to reach.

But she has a feeling this vote isn't the end - and there may be more sign controversy in the cape.

Marni Sawicki

Cape Coral Mayor

31:36 31:43

If there's things that come forward that seem to make more sense, or if things need to be tweaked along the way than I am more than willing to hear that

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Rain chances this evening

Showers and thunderstorms have been developing across areas east of Interstate 75 on Monday afternoon. Through this evening, the potential for a few showers or isolated thunderstorms to drift back toward the coastal communities of Southwest Florida will exist. However the overall coverage of rain along the US 41 corridor is expected to remain isolated.

Once again on Tuesday the chance for sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms will exist, but again the risk will be greatest for areas east of the interstate. Temperatures look to top out in the low 90s, near 92 degrees at Fort Myers by mid-afternoon on Tuesday.

The overall pattern for the rest of the week will feature rain chances, but again the areas experiencing the most widespread coverage should remain for the inland regions of Collier, Lee and Charlotte Counties. That risk then would be more widespread across locations in Hendry, Glades and DeSoto Counties.

Afternoon temperatures this week look to rise into the low 90s most afternoon with lows in the low to mid 70s early of the next several nights. Return to index of stories...
