Kaneville finds location for new roadside sign

By on May 1, 2011

Kaneville—Kaneville Village Board member Pat Hill told the board on April 21 that she had found a location within village limits to place the new roadside sign.

The previous location chosen for the sign was abandoned after it was discovered that being outside of village limits, the sign would be required to be 66 feet from the road’s center-line. At that location, it was decided that the sign would be very difficult to see.

“The new location is located on an undeveloped, half-acre open lot, owned by Ruth Lawson” said Hill, “She is very excited to be a part of this.”

The board also discussed landscaping plans for around the sign.

“There needs to be some bushes and flowers,” Trustee Paul Ross said. “Something to make it look nice.”

Also discussed were ways in which these plants would be acquired, and how the work would be done. One possibility they talked about would be to have the plants donated and installed by a local group.

If all goes according to plan, the village will have the sign installed by Memorial Day.
