A request to allow a 40-foot outdoor sign for a new Yukon equipment sales business off Interstate 40 will be considered next Monday night.
The Yukon Board of Adjustments will convene at 6 p.m. Dec. 6 inside the council chambers of the Centennial Building, 12 S 5th.
Members will hear an application from Jarrid Wright, of Metro Signs on behalf of Country Equipment, for a variance to the Yukon city code that limits the height of a building or structure to 35 feet in “any zoning district.”
Construction is underway on Yukon’s new Country Equipment, 2001 W Vandament, just east of the recently opened I-40/Frisco Road interchange.
The applicant is seeking this variance for a proposed 40-foot Kubota pylon sign “on the south side of the Country Equipment building so it will be seen from the highway,” according to a Nov. 5th letter to the Board of Adjustments signed by Tyson Bliss.
Only the Yukon Board of Adjustments can grant a height variance.
Members are Chairman Joe Horn, Vice Chairman Sherry Huston, Buddy Carpenter, Mike McKee, and Rhonda Dennis.
THE FOURTH DEALERSHIP
This new Yukon business will be Country Equipment’s fourth dealership.
Country Equipment sells Kubota tractors, Polaris ATVs and several lines of zero-turn riding lawn mowers. The company also rents tractors, skid steers, excavators, and more.
The company’s Yukon dealership is being built on a four-acre site north of Vandament and east of Frisco Road.
The front of the property will have a building and parking and the back will contain a detention pond and drainage area.
Yukon’s Country Equipment will have two separate driveways off Vandament.
Country Equipment’s other dealerships are at 3 N Morgan Road in Tuttle, 8901 S I-35 Service Road in Oklahoma City and 240 E State Highway 152 in Mustang.
