From Staff Reports

An application to move a digital billboard near Interstate 40 is going to be considered for approval by the Yukon Planning Commission in a meeting Monday night.

A proposal is to change to a triangular digital sign location at 1500 Garth Brooks Boulevard, south of Interstate 40 and north of the Health Center Parkway development in an area zoned as an automotive and commercial recreation district. An application has been made by the Central Oklahoma Marketing Group.

The proposal is to move the sign 60 feet south and 30 feet east of its current location in order to allow for future sale of the property where the sign is currently.

The sign is north of the Fairfield Inn Hotel.

In a 7 p.m. Oct. 12 planning commission hearing, the item is on an agenda with a recommendation for approval to be sent to the Yukon City Council.

The sign should be within 100 feet of the I-40 right-of-way and located as close to the highway as practicable, a planning commission agenda states. The maximum width of the sign would be 60 feet and would not be more than 35 feet tall.

The sign will not be within 1,000 feet of another sign, Yukon’s zoning ordinance states.
