CEDAR LAKE | The Town Council approved a sign variance for Walgreens during its recent council business meeting.
Walgreens asked permission to put up a digital sign at its Cedar Lake site at 13242 Wicker Ave. The variance, applied for by Midwest Sign & Lighting, will be 3 feet, 8 inches tall by 10 feet, 11 inches wide.
The Board of Zoning Appeals favorably recommended the variance before sending it to the council. The recommendation and subsequent town approval stipulates that the sign not flash or scroll side to side and that messages also will remain on the sign for a minimum of six seconds.
