“Another consideration is the speed of the traffic,” Lamb said. “I have heard many say Sam's in Edmond will bring sales tax. This is a tough one to address.”
Wayne Nice, attorney for Sam's, requested the final reduction in the sign making it 50-foot-tall and 150-square-foot on each side with a 20 foot set back.
Nice called the sign requirement unfair because Sam's owns 15 acres.
Council members unanimously approved the sign variance. Councilwoman Elizabeth Waner was absent from the meeting.
