Sixty-foot sign approval sought from Planning Commission Tuesday

The Planning Commission, on Tuesday, October 15, will discuss whether to amend the city’s zoning code to allow a 60-foot sign at Base Line Road and Towne Avenue.

The sign being proposed would support a potential small retail development at the southeast corner of Base Line and Towne. The development is located within the city’s mixed-use zoning district, which calls for “commercial uses to be located on the corner.” The zone does not, however, allow tall signs for those developments.

To support the potential retail center, staff believes a 60-foot sign would be necessary in order to be seen over the freeway grade and other site constraints such as tall power lines.

Community members are invited to take part in the discussion. The meeting takes place at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, 225 W. Second St. Those unable to attend may send written comments to PO Box 880, Claremont, CA 91711. For more information, contact Associate Planner Luke Seibert at 399-5483.
