Jeff Rhoades, representing Kelmscott Communications, has submitted a signage plan for a comprehensive update to the signage on the Northwestern Medicine – Kishwaukee Hospital campus, including updating the appearance, location, and total number of signs located throughout the campus. The DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance restricts the number, size, and location of signs that may be placed on the property. In order to allow the number, location, and size of signs proposed, several Variations must be granted from the County Sign regulations. Before a Variation can be granted, a public hearing must be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.
Mr. Rhoades is requesting such Variations for the Northwestern Medicine – Kishwaukee Hospital campus located southwest of the intersection of State Route 23 and Bethany Road. A public hearing will be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, March 9, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administration Building, East Conference Room, south entrance, 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore, IL 60178. All interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard, as this will be the only opportunity for public input on the application.
The petition, DK-17- 3, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Planning, Zoning, and Building Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
