EDMOND — Sam’s Club may be coming to Edmond, with a proposed location on Interstate 35 just north of the Walmart Supercenter at 15th Street and the interstate.
The first issue before the city is a request for a 500-square-foot sign that is 70 feet from the ground, which is larger than Edmond’s code allows.
“It is too tall and too big,” City Planner Bob Schiermeyer said.
The store and fuel station, to be located on 15 acres in the southwest corner of Fox Lake Plaza, would have a 90-foot frontage onto the interstate. The code allows a 25-foot-tall sign that is 60 square feet.
“The property is way off the road, and they think they need that big of a sign,” Schiermeyer said.
Fox Lake Lane is west of the proposed 138,000-square-foot box building that is proposed to have different elevations and insets in the design.
Planning commission members are expected to consider the sign variance at their meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at 20 S Littler Ave. City council members will make the final decision on the variance.
Zoning for the business on that property is already in place. A site plan for the building has not been turned into the city.
