Muncie to consider grounding business pole signage

MUNCIE (AP) — Muncie is considering grounding pole signs.

The city-county plan commission will conduct a public hearing Thursday on a proposed amendment to the city zoning ordinance that would prohibit pole signs along more than two dozen commercial corridors.

The Star Press reports the public has been demanding tighter controls over development along Muncie's commercial corridors for years. Current law allows signs that are 45-feet high.

Local bank officer Dan Ridenour complained to City Council last month about the height of a Panda Express sign, saying it shouldn't have a bigger sign than Wal-Mart.

Bloomington banned pole signs in certain commercial corridors in the late 1990s, and then prohibited them everywhere in 2007.

If the commission approves the new regulations, they still would have to be enacted by City Council.
