Some city residents are questioning the City Council’s ongoing efforts to regulate the size of political signs on private property, saying it infringes on free speech.
Their comments come this week after the City Council voted 8-1 to pass second reading of a zoning ordinance amendment that will regulate the size of political signs.
During this week’s meeting, City Planning Director Juliet Walker acknowledged that the signs former longtime Executive Councilor Ruth Griffin, R-Portsmouth, has posted in her yard in the past would violate the proposed zoning amendment.
