AUGUSTA — The Planning Board is scheduled to hold a public hearing Tuesday on a proposal to allow gas stations to have electronic price signs in zones where electronic message centers are not allowed.

Currently, the city’s ordinances do not differentiate between electronic signs that state a price versus signs with advertising messages.

Tuesday, at their 7 p.m. meeting in council chambers at Augusta City Center, planners will hold a public hearing on the proposal to differentiate between the two, and allow electronic price signs at gas stations in zones where electronic message centers are banned.

Board members are also scheduled to hold two workshop sessions.

One is for ongoing work rezoning sections of the city on the east side of the Kennebec River, from Cony Street to south of the Kennebec Arsenal and Stone and Hospital streets to the Kennebec River.

The other is to discuss an amendment to the Land Use Ordinance, revising the boundaries of the Planned Development 2 and Planned Development District along Riverside Drive.
