Fayetteville Home Businesses Asked To Curb Advertising

Posted August 8, 2001

— Some Fayetteville homeowners want home businesses to curb their advertising.

For six years, LaBonnie Binyard has operated Kiddie World Day Care inside her home. Two months ago, she decided to step her business up a notch by doing a little advertising.

Binyard is following city rules by hanging up her sign, but her next-door neighbor wants the city to do away with the sign ordinance.

"What I'm concerned about is that the property values will go down once commercial signs become more prevalent in the area," says homeowner Margaret McCollum.

Right now, city zoning limits signs advertising home businesses to two square feet and the sign must be mounted on the home. Council member Anne Fogleman says the issue has been referred to the policy committee.
