Taller IHOP sign near pedestrian bridge is approved

June 21, 2011

By Staff

City planners agreed to allow a taller sign for IHOP, because construction on a nearby pedestrian bridge has eclipsed the existing sign.

The pancake house plans to add a sign 22 feet tall — 10 feet taller than the existing sign. The application said a taller sign is needed because the pedestrian connector across Interstate 90 obscures the 12-foot-tall sign. The city approved the taller sign June 6.

The city Sign Code caps the height for monument signs at 10 feet.

Plans call for the taller sign to have an area of 75 square feet on each side, the same as the existing sign. IHOP, along the interstate and state Route 900, is in a commercial area.

Plans call for the completed pedestrian connector to feature a 12-foot-wide pedestrian bridge across the westbound interstate on-ramps, plus a 10-foot-wide pedestrian crossing on the existing state Route 900 overpass. The link is expected to open in the weeks ahead.
