An explanation of the proposed rules and the reason for the proposed rules:

The Logo Program provides eligible businesses with the opportunity to list their business identifications on official highway signs within the right-of-way of fully controlled access highways. The various service types are gas, food, lodging, camping, and attraction. As of today, NC has 14,733 installed logo sign panels, of which, 284 panels are for attraction services. More attraction facilities, particularly in rural areas, could participate in the program but do not meet the hours and days of operations requirement. The proposed changes to 19A NCAC 02E.0219 will allow facilities that have the primary purpose of providing amusement, historical, cultural, or leisure attractions that would not fully meet the qualifying hours and days of operation or distance to have a provisional contract. This provisional contract shall be written with the understanding that if a fully qualifying attraction business or facility applies, and there is no room on the sign for the new business or facility, then the last provisional contract shall be cancelled and the business.

The proposed change will allow attraction facilities that do not meet the hours and days of operations, an opportunity to participate in the program only where there is room on a sign.
