City asks for residents' input on electronic signs in neighborhoods
ELMHURST — The city is soliciting input from residents on a possible code change that would decide whether electronic signs will be allowed in residential areas.
The issue came to light last year when Redeemer Lutheran Church at Kenilworth Avenue and St. Charles Road requested permission from the city's zoning committee to build a 5 by 7 foot electronic sign in front of its property. The city had previously allowed similar signs on institutional properties in residential zones.
But neighbors and an alderman said the code did not allow for that type of sign in neighbrhoods, and the other similar signs on other properties never should have been approved. Elmhurst City Attorney Don Storino agreed, and the church's request was denied.
