It’s a tough time to be advocating for big signs, it seems.
Citing the backlash against Donald Trump’s large-lettered sign on his downtown skyscraper — as well as an incongruity with local ordinances — the Deerfield Village Board shot down a request for proposed signs at the new CD One Price Cleaners, TribLocal reports.
The owners had been denied their signs already by the Appearance Review Commission and appealed to the Village Board, TribLocal reports. But that body also nixed the signs, which are not in keeping with village zoning and appearance codes. The discussion cited Trump’s sign, calling the CD One Price Cleaners request a similar issue “on a much smaller scale.”
This isn’t the business’ first difficult board meeting. Early this year, local dry cleaners packed a board meeting objecting to the proposed business at 190 N. Waukegan Rd out of fears that it would put them out of business.
