After the completion of the new Bellaire High School and the ball fields at Bissonnet and Avenue B, the Houston Independent School District is not happy with Bellaire’s sign ordinances. An HISD representative is scheduled to appear before the Board of Adjustment on Thursday, September 15, 2022, due to the denial of sign permits per City Ordinances as follows:
- Maximum number of one sign per institution at Bellaire High School, 5100 Maple Sr., per Section 24-1012 (A)(3)(a).
- Installation of a 576 square foot scoreboard sign at the Bellaire High School Baseball Fields, located in an R-3 residential zone at 6300 Avenue B, per Section 24-1003 (55).
- A 14-foot tall monument sign at Bellaire High School which exceeds the maximum 8-foot height allowed per Section 24-1012 (B)(1)(c).
What do you think about HISD’s efforts to circumvent our zoning ordinances?
Please email concerns or questions to the Mayor and members of City Council via our City Clerk, Tracy Dutton, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let Council know what you think.
