    Redevelopment agency will meet

  • The Community Redevelopment Agency will hold a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday to decide which projects in the Community Redevelopment Plan will be tackled this year.
    The agency will specifically consider changing sign requirements for downtown businesses, including giving Dean's Drugs a little relief.
    Owner Laura Dean requested a sign variance to install a 32-square-foot sign 17 feet high. Her goal is to be visible from the SR 21/100 intersection.
    With CVS Pharmacy a block away, and a new Walgreen's on the way, Dean's business has to compete with retail giants that can have signs 300 square feet in size and 30 feet tall.
