Bojangles responds to town wanting them to take down Clemson-themed design

Bojangles unveiled a Tiger-themed restaurant display painted up in orange and purple this weekend. As fans drove up to the Clemson-Georgia Tech game, they were treated to the new Clemson look. However, on Monday, the town planner David Poulson told WYFF News 4 that the design doesn't comply with the Read Update »

Hate to tell you but the planner isn't Hitler. He does not make the rules, only has to "evaluate and enforce" them when a complaint is made. Poulson is the spokesperson here explaining the rule, not making it up as he goes along.

Keep in mind that Hitler was "elected". Same here. Town Council made these ordinances law, not the town planner.

I get being weary of government, but at least direct your criticism to the correct location.

I’m gonna guess you are a youngster, “futuredoc”. If not, I really don’t care, but I’m hoping you are too inexperienced to realize why your comments are irrelevant and unappreciated I’m matters such as these. You should direct your energy of criticism and education efforts toward the town council and the planner not the poster. The town of Clemson and all surrounding towns (Pendelton or others) have all benefited tremendously from our enthusiastic fan base. If that building is a violation then they should hold an emergency meeting to change the ordinance and the planner should have spear headed the effort! There is always someone more interested in defining the BS bureaucracy thank supporting the backlash. Good grief, don’t bother commenting if this is all you have.

If it was an issue with bureaucracy (ie not getting a permit because of excessive an unnecessary requirements during the permitting process) I would be in agreement. However, it is not the case.

Next, Pendleton is not my town council. They could require all building be painted pink for all I care. I am fairly involved with my own council (might have even voted too), and heck, Mrs Futuredoc used to work for the local governments Pickens/Oconee/Anderson while finishing graduate school.

Folks get really wish-washy about "which" laws or ordinances they want to obey. They blame the civil servant, not their own elected officials. Fair enough. However, this is akin to attacking the "tax-man" over your "tax-rate" or berating a waiter because you have grief with the owner. It isn't productive nor is making an informed local decision.

However, your post is incredibly naive if you think the process works that way. First, the council would have the direct the planner to being forth an amendment (or they could strike it down/revoke it on their own accord). Planner are more technical if value jobs and tend to stay away from creating political stink. This is where Poulson is a messenger explaining the ordinance/violation, not the author. Next, they can't control the message (freedom of speech issue). Keep in mind, they can control the medium of speech within a limit (ie size, etc), but they can't say "Tigers only, no coots". In addition, those changes would apply universally, and thus you could have building with whatever messages.

Here is the other thing, Bojangles could have easily asked for a temporary variance and I bet it would be grated unless council really had a rod up its bum.

But again, it isn't some local employee deciding what they want, they are just explaining the ordinance. If it was, I would be right there with you with the pitchfork. Otherwise, until you show me that the local planner stepped beyond his designated role, I am not going to complain about him. I won't trust him, but that isn't the point of blame. If he ignored it, there might be some cause.

here is the other thing... remember dabo's speeding ticket? Dabo has done a lot for us but was he correctly cited for speeding. Yes. 63 in a 35. Do we change the speed law because of him. Nope. However, the cop was canned... not because he wrote the ticket but because he went beyond the scope and posted/commented publicly on the clock without authorization.

The planner is not doing anything beyond the scope here.

The change isn’t gory, graphic, or offensive so what’s the problem? Just cause a Coot gets butt hurt doesn’t mean you have to cater life to them. Police can enforce going 1 mile over the speed limit but they don’t. Why cause that would be ridiculous just like this rule this guy is trying to enforce.

Re: Man I hate the government.


Sep 22, 2021, 9:02 AM

Executing zoning ordinances and exterminating people is a wildly different item.

Next, Bojangles could have easily avoid this by requesting a variance.

Next, do you think wrapping a whole building is 1mph over? I mean, if their sign was 61sqft when the regulations said 60sqft, they might not be called out. But to use you example, they are doing 50 over with disco lighting. That is going to create attention.

Again, the town planner is not the "enforcer" here. Other than code enforcement and that is more on building code etc, you really don't go out looking. I bet some uppty citizen started calling their council member over it. Or even similar/neighboring property owners.

Speaking as a property owner in Pendleton, the town is more of a pain in the butt than HOA's that I have been a part of. Hitler may be going to far, but they are either selective enforcing their rules or they send out A LOT of letters. I am renovating an old mill house and have gotten 2 letters when demo'd materials or construction materials have gotten spread out. I got another before I hired someone to cut the grass because it got high while I was out of the country for a little over a month.

I am pretty sure that I have not gotten complaints from my immediate neighbors because they are appreciative that I am fixing the house up. There are a lot of places around Pendleton that are in worse shape than mine. I understand the goal, and they may be in the right legally (the ordinances that they quoted for me were a little on the vague and ambiguous side), but they are certainly more active than other places that I have dealt with.

It very well may be counterproductive, because I won't renovate anything in Pendleton again. I would say that it isn't worth the hassle, but it has more been just not wanting to hear the nagging. By the time I received the letters, what I think they were objectionable to was already taken care of or I had planned to do what I think they wanted done. I was never actually cited.

It just seems to me that the town is trying to support a larger municipal government than the population would dictate. My water bill is twice what it is for my personal house. I assume that some of these letters actually end up with citations. Legally, I don't know what the outcome will be with Bojangle's but it seems to me to be blackmail for a variance. Otherwise, news would not have come out from someplace other than Bojangle's. Just my 2 cents.

Until all of a sudden it affects them directly. I can tell you from experience that city ordinances regarding signage and building colors are there primarily because without them, businesses would make every street and neighborhood look like Times Square.

What amazes me more is how worked up people get about this kind of ridiculous trivial stuff, like all of a sudden Pendleton hates Clemson and Bojangles. They don't. They're just telling a business to abide by the same rules that literally every other business in the town has to abide by, and has done so for decades.

In the meantime, Bojangles is loving the publicity and absoutely laps it up. They'll probably pay those fines happily, with a giant sh1t-eating grin on their faces.

Meh, these ordinances always cut both ways and planner normally don't get to act on a lot of their own opinions/beliefs. That is determined by the elected councils etc. I bet Poulson is likely "fine" with the building on this point but he can't act on personal items. He has to take what the town council signed it into law and judge impartially once a complaint is made.

Again, some coot could wrap their outhouse and be told to take it down. Othertimes folks will rant, kick and scream when you don't have an ordinance like this and the local cathouse puts up BIG "advertisements" on the side of the road.

Whitehurst, you are truly ignorant about this, so I just pray you’re not a Clemson grad. Did you know, for example, that the school has or had the only Masters Program in City and Regional planning in the state? Often it is professionals who come out of that program who write zoning ordinances, enforce the codes, etc. They do not do politics. By the way, it is extremely common for cities and towns to employ zoning ordinances that regulate signage along with land use, etc. They do not and cannot regulate content of signs. A planner can not pick and choose what an owner can put on a building based on who they are or who they represent. Period. This is not about Clemson. It is about a community trying to achieve appearance and other standards. In addition has it ever occurred to you that massive signs can create a dangerous distraction for passing motorists? No I’m sure it never occurred to, because your thought process is Trumpian, which translates into completely thoughtless.

Sep 22, 2021, 8:08 AM

IMO they are a necessary evil. I've never lived in a neighborhood with a really tyrannical HOA though - like the ones that have to measure every plant that goes in the ground and such.

For the most part it's the same basic stuff. Don't park boats and RVs in your driveway or on the street in front of your house, don't fill your yard with old junk, mow your grass occasionally, don't let your house turn green, etc.

I support that stuff because I don't want a neighbor with broken down cars on blocks and 3 foot high grass and weeds next door if it ever comes time for me to sell.

Shrug, that is called "freedom'. Private citizens are able to enter into an agreement via property deeding to keep things the way they want. They are free to do so and the government can't tell them no.

There is always a tradeoff with zoning/HOA. You lose something to gain something. Some people would scrafice a lot to prevent my purple house.

I don't have a HOA. My house is painted purple and an orange (door) with green accents. Ironically, it does very well blending into the woods in both the spring and summer. This would be prohibited in some communities. However, my Dookie neighbors can paint their house blue, etc. To each their own. Some places get as far as what roof/materials you use or even disallowing any changes. Go ask Charleston about their rules.

The last I heard, most of Anderson County is unzoned. This would be a non-issue if outside of Pendleton unless Anderson has updating things since I was last there or has other building codes like this. However, Bo chose to build and be in Pendleton so they have to play by their rules. Shrug.

or be confused with any authorized traffic sign, signal or device. No sign with a rotating
beam, beacon, strobe or flashing illumination resembling any emergency lights shall
make use of the words “STOP," “LOOK,” “DANGER" or any other word, phrase,
symbol or character in such a manner as to interfere with, mislead or confuse traffic."

or this one to prohibit the local swingers and bicurious from advertising their wares

"No sign shall contain statements, words or pictures of an obscene, indecent or immoral
character, such as will offend public morals or decency."

99% of this BS is actually not law.

They are ordinances.

There is a distinct difference because an ordinance is something enacted by an official government body which has a certain amount of authority but it is not a law passed by a legislative body. And what typically happens is these executive branch bureaucratic organizations are run by people that love power and control and they want to make the world in the image they prefer. And they always go too far.

Same with all of these mandates around Covid. A president or a governor can’t just say do something and people have to do it. That’s a dictator that’s not true legislation, which is why all of this nonsense loses when it gets to the courts.

Sooner or later any organization with power and control becomes corrupt and go too far and people have to push back and fight back.

But what makes it more difficult for people to push back and fight back is all the good little rules followers making excuses and rationalizations. The go along to get along crowd. TigerNet is full of good proper people like that.

Saying something is the law doesn’t make it right. That is stupid logic. There are laws on the books from 50 years ago even 100 years ago that people decide simply not to enforce because they are stupid laws.

A lot of what you see is actually an ordinance which is not a law because it hasn’t properly been passed by legislation. Like all of these mandates surrounding Covid. Those are not laws and when they get pushed in court they lose because they are unconstitutional.

Simply saying it’s the law is dumb and ignorant. That doesn’t make it right it doesn’t make it moral doesn’t make it legal doesn’t make it constitutional.

pheewwwwww.... case in point "stupid logic"

Cites "old laws" not enforces, brings up constitutions. Yikes.

The age of a law does not determine its validity.... otherwise the constitution would be in serious trouble.v Laws remain in effect until revoked or ammended or if there is a provision for sunsetting.

FYI, as a Libertarian, I think all government programs, if not laws should have a sunset date.


However, ordinances are a part of the constitution - huh, what? You need to take your 10th amendment work.

Powers not given to delegated or prohibited to the states remain with the states. Thus the states can then delegate other powers to how it incorporates and delegates to municipal and county governments. Thus you have Dillon and Home Rule states. Depending if it is home rule (south carolina is, nc is dillon) will help determine what types of powers a local government can use and what laws it can pass.

Zoning in this case is clearly law and supported by Supreme Court cases although it has limits. See Euclid vs Amber Reality. The key to all zone is it can't take everything without compensation (Lucas vvs South Carolina (although flood zones etc might have some effect) and they have to be within the police power.

Here is my guess (bold)

158.10.07 Permanent Nonexempt Signs - Regulations by Sign Type A. Ground Signs 1. A ground sign which is 16 feet or more in area may be displayed only on a frontage
of 100 feet or more, and may not be closer than 100 feet to any other ground sign
which is six feet or more in area.
2. All ground signs must be set back at least 5 feet from the edge of the right-of-way.
B. Wall Signs 1. Wall signs may be painted on or attached to the wall but must not project from the wall by more than 12 inches and must not interrupt architectural details.
2. A wall sign that is either a boxed sign or individual letters, placed in a space between
windows, may not exceed a dimension two-thirds of the distance between the closest
edges of the windows.

3. Wall signs may extend to 20 feet from ground level or to the peak of the building,
whichever is lower, on highways with posted driving speeds of 45 miles per hour or
less. Wall signs may extend to the peak of a building on highways with posted
driving speeds of 45 miles per hour or more with the following height limitations:
a. A wall sign displayed by an activity on the first story may not extend above the
window sill of the second story.
158.10 b. A wall sign displayed by an activity above the first story may be no higher than
the window sill of the third story.

Correction - this is the issue. I think... not my area of expertise but I try and do my research

Maximum area of any advertising sign is sixty (60) square feet. Other provisions of this code may reduce that area.

Depending on the quality, vinyl wraps last 5+ years and can even bake in on southern facades. That is considered permanent. Really anything that could last "a season" can be considered permanent. Really, anything that stands up to weather could be considered permanent. Some paints don't even last that long.

Just because if a property owner makes something out of non-treated lumber vs treated lumber does not make it permanent or temporary.

I would imagine Bojangles is all in because I bet they have plans for stores in other college towns to “bid” on which one gets to be associated with the university when there are several in an area.

As for vinyl signs, I don’t see how anything affixed to the building and not breaking the physical outline of that building qualifies as a sign.

I wish I was close by so I could run over there and put in a big order. I love what the franchise owner did here and would love to support them. To me, it’s stuff like this that makes college football as special as it is. I see this as the flip side to the NIL coin, local businesses supporting local teams in their own communities. If anyone is local and can stop in to place a bunch of $2 (bill) orders and help this business out, that’s some all in support and a positive way to stick it to David Poulson and his crew.

My question is , is the Town of Pendleton questioning the banners that were on side of road, or the new paint scheme on the building? Banners and canopy up along side of road I can understand, because they did hinder the view of northbound traffic on Hwy. 76 leaving Bojangles. I picked up tailgate from there at 1030. It was difficult to see around banners to get out of their parking lot.

PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ME A LIAR ON THIS ONE!!!

SKIP IT!!! If you normally stop at Bojangles (a Tremendous Corporate of College Football) in Pendleton, just keep goin' and hit the one in Clemson!

Bojangles responds to town wanting them to take down Clemson-themed design

Bojangles unveiled a Tiger-themed restaurant display painted up in orange and purple this weekend. As fans drove up to the Clemson-Georgia Tech game, they were treated to the new Clemson look. However, on Monday, the town planner David Poulson told WYFF News 4 that the design doesn't comply with the Read Update »

You all are making way too big a deal over this. I'm sure the City of Clemson has similar restrictions over sign size and what buildings look like. Most cities do. They want their towns to not be an eye sore with out of control advertising and signage. The same people on here complaining every time downtown Clemson changes with a mid rise apartment building.Probably why the Clemson Bojangles wasn't wrapped. Its all temporary anyway. Not like they painted the brick.
