The Board of Adjustment approved a sign variance for Richard Hammmon and Coffelt Sign Company Inc., for a sign for Braum’s at 503 E. Highway 114.
The board met Tuesday to hold a public hearing on the matter. Board members asked whether there was any opposition to the sign, which John Agnew, chief building inspector, said the inspections department had received one letter of opposition from the property owner at the strip mall in the 400 block of E. Highway 114.
David Duffee, board member, asked why the property owner was opposed to it. Agnew explained it was the height of the sign, which was listed as 35 feet tall. The property owner said he would be agreeable to a 25 foot sign.
After some discussion, the commissioners approved the variance for the sign, described as standing 35 feet tall and to be built zero feet from the front property line and over 30 feet from the side property line located at 503 E. Highway 114. Tim Cooke abstained from the vote as he owns a sign company and might be asked to install the sign for the company.
This is the most recent step made by the company bringing Braum’s to Levelland. Last year, the city council approved a final plat for Braum’s. The inspections department says the company is still working to develop building plans and hasn’t applied for a building permit yet.
