The Thousand Oaks Planning Commission approved a 35-foot-tall sign with a LED color screen last night. The vote on the freeway sign was 3-2 with Commissioners Daryl Reynolds, Mark Lunn and Barry Fisher in favor of the sign and Tina Grumney and Al Adam voting against it. All the commissioners approved adding 364 new parking spaces, changes in landscaping and additional direction signs on surface streets.
The existing sign is 20 feet tall by 30 feet wide. The new sign will be 35 feet tall by 40 feet wide. The new sign will remain approximately 40 feet from the freeway, near the existing spot.
