Orland Park Wants to Ban Neon Signs, Fleet Graphics, Cabinet Signs and Billboards

So much for trying to be a retailer in Orland Park, IL. According to a May 22 article in The Orland Park Prairie, the village’s Plan Commission held a packed public hearing on May 8, at which a proposed sign code was presented. According to illustrations in the article, neon signs, fleet graphics, cabinet (referred to as “box” signs) signs and billboards will all be banned, “except as specifically provided in Section 6-307.” The article’s headline begins with “Development Concerns Raised.” One wonders how many members of the Plan Commission own a business.
