Argued: October 9, 2001

William T. Spriggs (appellant) appeals from the order of the Washington County Court of Common Pleas affirming the order of the South Strabane Township Zoning Hearing Board (Board) requiring appellant to remove a sign that violated the Township Zoning Ordinance (Ordinance). We affirm.

Appellant resides on a lot located in South Strabane Township’s residential district, zoned R-3. *fn1 Appellant also owns several cleared vacant lots located in the rear of his residence, overlooking Interstate 70. Appellant erected a privacy fence between an in-ground swimming pool, located immediately behind his residence, and the edge of his property adjoining Interstate 70. The privacy fence is 64 feet in length and ranges from ten to eleven feet in height. The entire upper four-foot section of the fence is solid plywood. To this plywood section, appellant affixed white, aluminum, two-foot high lettering, communicating passages from the Bible. Appellant changes these passages from time to time. Some of the messages are written in Hebrew and some are English translations of biblical psalms. This section of the fence faces Interstate 70, but does not face any other property.
