GENESEO — William Wadsworth is looking for the final say from The Village of Geneseo to build signs on his homestead.
Wadsworth, who is also the Town of Geneseo Supervisor, sought permission from the Geneseo Village Zoning Board Tuesday night, to erect a two-sided free standing sign, as well as attach two signs to his stone wall.
According to Geneseo Zoning Law section 130-91, in a MU1 district, freestanding signs are not permitted. The Geneseo Zoning Law also does not allow signs to be attached to stone walls or fences, per the code of the Village of Geneseo.
Wadsworth’s appeal was approved under the provision that the freestanding sign needs to stay under six feet in height.
However, before the signs can be put up by Wadsworth, the Geneseo Planning Board must first approve the colors as well as the typeface for the signs.
