City BZA Approves Signage at LJH

November 5, 2013

11/06/13 Members of the Plymouth Board of Zoning Appeals approved a variance for the Plymouth Community School Corporation for signage at Lincoln Junior High School. 

  Planning Consultant Ralph Booker presented the request to increase the maximum number of signs from three to four.  Booker showed pictures of the current signage: the front entrance on west side the original building is Lincoln High School engraved in stone and on the north side of the original gymnasium Centennial is engraved.  The final sign is at the circle-drive entrance that says Lincoln Junior High School.

  Randy Whiteman from US Signcrafters in Osceola said the school corporation is interested in keeping the engraved signs for their historical significances.   

  The school would like to update the Lincoln Junior High School because it is dark letters on dark brick and not very legible.   

  The proposed sign would be a white background red letters outlined by black. 

  The new signage requested would be over the entrance for the Innovation Academy at Lincoln which is now further to the east in the circle-drive on the north side of the building. 

Without any hesitation members of the Plymouth Board of Zoning Appeals unanimously approved the variance request for the Plymouth Community School Corporation.

    I’m sure that updating this signage will improve the educational experience of the students. Or maybe it’s because with the old signs the students just couldn’t find the school?

    If the old signs aren’t in danger of falling off the building what’s the point exactly? Someone’s pet project?

    It’s at least nice to see they don’t (yet) plan to replace those literally carved in stone.

    Those signs are just way too ugly. Please, go back, and find a new design.
