The Bowling Green/Warren County Planning and Zoning Commission is proposing a new set of sign rules for the area. The new rules would reduce the height of signs on city roadways from 35 to 30 ft. high and from 200 to 150 sq. feet in area.

Signs along I-65 would be reduced from 150 to 100 ft. high and from 250 to 200 sq. feet.

The new rules would apply to new signs, but all existing signs would remain as is.

"Still allows everybody to have ability to advertise their business, but the signs aren't kind of covering each other up and just causing more congestion and confusion," said Planning and Zoning director Andy Gillies.

The commission will hold public hearings on the proposal. Here's a complete schedule:

    Tuesday June 15 from 1:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the L&N Depot and at each of the Concerts in the Park every Wednesday in June.
