Walgreens will make a third stab at getting a larger-than-allowed sign for its new Commerce store Monday night.
The Commerce Planning Commission will hear company officials argue for a 36-square-foot sign — 50 percent larger than allowed under the city sign ordinance — at 7:00 p.m. in the Peach Room of the Commerce Civic Center.
The planning commission makes recommendations to the Commerce City Council on zoning and land use issues.
Walgreens first applied for an 80-square foot monument sign plus an automated letterboard sign. When the planning commission rejected that, Walgreens came back in April with a proposal for a 24-square-foot pole sign and a letterboard sign of equal size. The planning commission rejected that as well.
The latest proposal includes a monument sign comprising 36 square feet, including the letterboard sign, according to David Zellner, planning director.
