Members of the Edgerton Planning Commission will consider granting a conditional use permit for a lighted billboard at 20080 Homestead Lane.
Commissioners first considered the proposal during the March 12 planning commission meeting, but tabled it at the request of Tim Gates, the applicant.
A protest petition against the project has been filed with the city.
According to Edgerton City Administrator Beth Linn, the protest petition won’t affect the planning commission. However, the protest means that three-quarters of the city council must approve the conditional permit use request in order for it to be granted.
The billboard, if approved, would sit on the southern portion of a large parcel of land at 199th Street and Homestead Lane directly adjacent to the Kansas Department of Transportation interchange currently under construction.
In order to file a protest petition, the protester must own property within 200 feet of the proposed conditional use protest.
In this case, the owner of the property protesting the billboard is listed as Prairie Tree, LLC.
The Edgerton Planning Commission will consider the conditional use permit request during a meeting on Thursday, May 16. The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at Edgerton City Hall.
