Elrich Seeks Applicants for Sign Review Board

County Executive Marc Elrich is seeking applicants to fill four vacancies on the Sign Review Board for an architect licensed in Maryland, an individual who operates a business in Montgomery County, and two public resident representatives. The business and resident incumbents are eligible to apply for reappointment. All members must be residents of Montgomery County.

The five-member Board reviews variance applications and grants variances from the sign regulations of the Montgomery County Code. At least one member of the Board must be an architect licensed to practice architecture in the State and at least one member must be a person operating a business in the County.

Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for in-person meetings attended. The Board currently meets virtually by video- and teleconference once a month on Wednesday or Thursday mornings at 8:30 AM. Members are required to file a public financial disclosure statement before County Executive appointment and annually thereafter. When in-person meetings resume in the future, the Board will meet in Rockville.

Applicants of diverse, backgrounds, professions, genders, geography, abilities, ethnicities, and ages are encouraged to apply. Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Members must complete training on the Maryland Open Meetings Act and basic parliamentary procedure. The County Executive’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications will be forwarded to the Council for confirmation and may be made public as part of the confirmation process. The deadline for application is April 28, 2021.
