The state’s main lobbying group for restaurants is the latest business interest to oppose Raleigh’s proposed new sign restrictions.
Lynn Minges, president and CEO of the N.C. Restaurant & Lodging Association, asked the Raleigh City Council to vote against the measure in a recent letter.
“Our member restaurants in Raleigh rely on indoor window signs to publicize their products, their daily or weekly specials, and their holiday promotions,” Minges said. “While we understand the need to regulate the size and location of outdoor signs, NCRLA is not aware of any other jurisdiction that regulates indoor window signs. We see no public health, safety or welfare reason for doing so.”
