Electronic Sign Causes A Stir

An electronic sign is disturbing multiple Willow Park residents and is in violation of multiple City of Leduc bylaws, a delegation told council Feb. 23.

Speaking on behalf of a dozen residents who were at the City Council meeting, Pat Luke told councillors the location of the Days Inn electronic sign contravenes multiple sections of Bylaw 809-2013 as it creates a traffic hazard and is obstructing and impairing the vision of pedestrian traffic on 50 Street.

“As soon as traffic turns out of the Tim Hortons, it is in the direct line of sight of the traffic signals,” she said.

The sign is also glaring into at least two living room windows of residents in the area, which also contravenes the bylaw.

“We presented this to the Development Authority and their response to the presentation was it does fall into the field of vision, it does fall in direct sight of traffic,” said Luke.

The residents want council to address the issue and pointed out that administration was aware there was a glare into homes as soon as it was erected.

“The bylaw is to ensure there are safe, esthetically pleasing signs. This sign is not safe and we appeal to council to shut it down,” she said.

Mayor Greg Krischke said now that council is aware of the situation they will address the issue.
