Local officials in the City of Westminster, CO are using a new tool that easily and accurately measures sign dimensions, increasing compliance with the sign ordinance and reducing staff time spent on these tasks.
They’re using Spike, a smart laser measurement solution, for conducting these inspections.
Spike can be used to measure:
- Object sizes, including signs, additions, fences, apartment complexes, etc.
- Distances, like how far a structure is set back into a yard
- Clearances, like how far a structure projects over a sidewalk
To take measurements, your city inspector simply takes a photo of the object with the Spike laser device and a smartphone or tablet, and draws the measurements that they need for inspections using the Spike mobile app.
Your inspector will then be easily able to determine if the sign (and/or facility) is in accordance with the permit.
