Monument-style signs are preferred for businesses in Valparaiso, especially in residential areas, according to a Board of Zoning Appeals decision Tuesday.
The board said it didn’t want a replacement sign at the 3100 Campbell Street dentist office to resemble the one that Dr. William Amos had there.
Instead, the board asked Dr. Michael Hayduk to make it look more like a monument-style sign by putting a base of landscaping around the two posts supporting the roughly 67-inch by 29-inch sign.
The dentist office is south of Butterfly Meadows Park and next to residences, but the city didn’t receive complaints about replacing the sign, which had been removed about a year ago because of termite damage.
Joe and Dara Clifford of Clifford Stone and the house there did attend the meeting to support it.
