Proposals on Neon Signs on Facades

FIC approached the Construction Ministry and City of Belgrade with a suggestion to resolve the problems related to the corporate features on the facades. In a letter on April 15, FIC outlined that tenants request unreasonable indemnities from companies for putting the neon signs on the facades. The problem stems from the amendments of the local authorities’ rules on advertising that stipulate that the tenants need to approve of putting the signs on the facades. In some cases, tenants’ representatives condition such approval by unreasonable fees. As a consequence, certain companies are faced with the choice to agree to pay this additional fee to the residents or to remove corporate signs and move them to the shop window, which also leaves local governments without revenue on this basis, the letter states. FIC proposal is to regulate unique fee to be paid to the tenants’ communities. The initiative can be found here.
