ProMedica looking at larger sign 09.22.2010

Written by David Green.

Morenci’s zoning board of appeals will consider a request for a new sign at the Charles Fay building on W. Coomer Street.

Toledo Sign Company filed for the hearing on behalf of ProMedica Health System for a sign that exceeds the size allowed by city ordinance.

The maximum size allowed for property zoned multi-family residential is five feet in height and 12 square feet, although ProMedica’s existing sign is seven feet high and 35 square feet.

The proposed sign would stand nine feet, 10 inches and would measure about 60 square feet. The new sign would be erected closer to the building and would list the services offered: senior center, lab, Total Rehab and Dr. William Gray’s office.

All of the existing services will soon be housed in the Fay building and the old hospital structure will be demolished.

The zoning board of appeals approved a similar request in June, said city administrator/clerk Renée Schroeder, but no action was taken and now the sign dimensions have been changed again by ProMedica.

The hearing is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in city hall.
