‘Poor live oak’

Posted: Saturday, March 16, 2019 10:26 am

Dear readers: The following column appeared in The Kerrville Daily Times a few weeks ago, but, due to a printing error, the wrong headline was used, which may have confused some readers. Therefore, it is being run again here.

For most of the past 19 years, the drive I take from my home to town begins as a winding road full of hills and turns. At one point, the road passes by a large native live oak that has always been striking because of both its size, its dark leaves, its near but not perfect symmetry, and because there are no other trees or structures so near to it that it stands out beautifully against the grass below.

Do the city's signage and billboard regulations need an update?

Signage has been a hot topic for discussion in our comment sections of late, with multiple variance requests going before the city's Planning and Zoning Commission regarding various signs, both digital and otherwise. Should the city update its rules regarding signs — how big, where, how many, etc. — or should the rules remain as they are?
