Palatine Village (Illinois) Waives Temporary-sign Ban for Community Plant Sale

Ed. note: The following are verbatim minutes from the Village of Palatine Village Council and Committee of the Whole meeting of May 7, 2018.

2. Consider a Motion Approving a Waiver of the Village’s Sign Regulations to Allow the Installation of Temporary Signs Related to the Plum Grove Garden Club Plant Sale on May 12, 2018 – Approved by Voice Vote (Council District: Six)

Village Manager Reid Ottesen explained the Plum Grove Garden Club’s plant/flower sale on Saturday, May 12 in the Community Parking Lot (located at 340 W. Palatine Road). In conjunction with their plant sale, the Garden Club has requested a waiver of the Village’s sign regulations to allow temporary signs advertising the event. The Garden Club requested approval for their event signage to be posted on Tuesday, May 8 at three intersections within the Village as well as six signs along Palatine Road (between Northwest Highway and Plum Grove Road), with all signs to be removed following the event. While the Village has granted relief for event signage in the past, these approvals have been for signage located at intersections and for signage to be installed no more than 3 days prior to the event. Based on past practice, staff recommends waiving the Village’s sign regulations to allow the installation of signs at three intersections on Wednesday, May 9.

Result: Approved By Voice Vote [Unanimous]

Mover: Jim Schwantz, Mayor

Seconder: Scott Lamerand, District 2 Councilman

Ayes: Schwantz, Millar, Lamerand, Myslinski, Solberg, Helms

Absent: Kozlowski
