American flag will replace sign for Camping World

GEORGETOWN, Ky. — Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis said he will fly an American flag instead of erecting a sign in front of his planned Georgetown store, but he will need to go back to the Georgetown Board of Adjustment before that can happen.

In January, Camping World obtained a conditional use permit from the Georgetown Board of Adjustment for a 110-foot-tall sign near the interstate, but the company was denied a request for a 130-foot flagpole because it would constitute a second interstate sign.

  1. Now I will go crazy doing research as some time ago a court (in SC I believe) ruled there is a difference between a sign and the flag as the flag is NOT a sign but a symbol.

    This is an example of how NOT to encourage business by our local Georgetown Scott County P&Z commission. It’s not that this community is unpatriotic, quite the opposite! These are typical P&Z bureaucrats that have NEVER owned a business and work in government making rules for business.
    In most cases they are doing the right thing to protect the residents of our wonderful community. But an American Flag being denied? Really? This NOT one of those situations.

    I side with Camping World on this issue and will attend the city commission meeting next week and state just that. Camping World should consider to join the Scott County Chamber of Commerce, the pressure will come to bear on the P&Z.
