City Planner Heather Nick said close scrutiny is being given to the amount of signage allowed in windows and outside certain establishments.
Councilman Mark Whatley and other elected leaders indicated the city is committed to doing what is legally possible to retain the beauty of the community.
Earlier this year, the “Buy Local First” special purpose political action committee announced a plan to seek voter approval for legalized sales in Precinct 2, which includes southwestern Tyler, Flint and Bullard, records show.
Voters are being asked to consider two provisions, one being the legal sale of beer and wine for off-premises consumption in places such as grocery and convenience stores.
The second option permits the legal sale of mixed beverages in restaurants by food and beverage certificate holders only. This version was overwhelmingly approved by Tyler voters in 2008, but the current effort would expand sales to areas annexed after 2008 and in Justice Precinct 2.
Early voting for that election started Monday and city leaders said they will be ready, legally, should the initiative pass.
