CITY OF DRIPPING SPRINGS ENACTS NEW SIGN ORDINANCE

Dripping Springs City Council adopted a new sign ordinance at their regular council meeting on December 9, 2008 and began enforcing it as of January 1st. The ordinance affects the development and use of property within the corporate limits of the City of Dripping Springs and its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The ordinance was researched and considered for several years to prevent traffic hazards and reduce the clutter and aesthetic harm to the rural landscape and highway corridors. The intent was to ensure future signs are properly constructed and maintained, compatible with the historic, rustic and architectural character of Dripping Springs, as well as to meet driver and pedestrian (we wish) safety guidelines per the laws of the State of Texas.
