The Storefront Project

The Tri-County Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (TCCADA) was awarded a small grant to examine Point-of-Sale (PoS) advertising using CounterTools in Bamberg County by the SC Tobacco-Free Collaborative. One of the follow-up ideas was based on the amount of signage found on the outside of businesses in Bamberg County. After exploring and researching the issue, we began identifying content neutral advertising ordinances in our area as a way to limit the amount of storefront signage.  As our agency covers three counties, we discovered that while Bamberg and Calhoun counties do not have one, Orangeburg County does have such an ordinance. We have since found that towns and cities may have jurisdictional issues that conflict with that of the county and so now are asking communities and their citizens to support the idea of limiting storefront advertising on the basis of aesthetics, safety and health.  Please show your support by sending a letter to your council members. You can click here for a listing of your city/county officials.  Please also take our brief survey about this project.  Thanks for all of your help. It takes the whole community to make meaningful change.
