So I did, Daughters Eat as Mama Watches Litter Loopholes Plague City Directors Amending Code Pasadena city fathers had to postpone filling a loophole in some city legislation be- cause they found a loophole In the amendment designed to fill the loophole. The whole thing: started last year in an appeal'from'a Planning Commission ruling under the civic center con- trols of the', city. Representatives of the YMCA pointed put that they had ben denied an 80 square foot sign under restrictions which place a limit of 50 square feet on signs in the area. But, said a sign execu- tive, there is nothing in the law to prevent installing an unlimited number of 50 square foot signs on property in the civic center. City Directors approved the YMCA sign and set the city attorney to work amend- ing the code to fill the loop- hole. He came up with an amendment retaining the 50 square foot limit, but noting that it applied to the .cumula- tive total of all signs on a given piece of property in the civic center. Director1 -A. Bay Benedict wasn't satisfied. That would still permit, for example, 5 signs each 2 by 5 feet in size. He' suggested that the ordi nance be amended to the 50 foot maximum area, and the number of signs be limited to two. Board members agreed.
