'I am afraid of us looking like Oklahoma City,' former Edmond mayor says about electronic signs
As the sign ordinance committee continues to come up with a new code, former Edmond Mayor Saundra Naifeh continues to speak out against electronic signs. She said she doesn't want Edmond to look like Oklahoma City.
Electronic signs for the price of fuel have been allowed in Edmond at OnCue Express, 800 S Broadway, and Turbo Express, 1800 E Second St. Council members approved variances from the city's codes to allow both of the signs.
An electronic message sign sits on top of the Edmond Sun newspaper building. This sign was in place before Edmond had a sign ordinance. The only other electronic signs in the city are time and temperature signs.
The sign ordinance was adopted in 1994. Discussion about amending the electronic sign ordinance began two years ago when Bob Williams, of R.L. Williams & Co., wanted to post messages on an electronic sign.
