FARMINGTON — Lagoon Corporation has been petitioning a change to the city ordinance that would allow the company to display additional electronic message signage along a zone of scenic byway surrounding Lagoon property.
Though the city has held two public hearings on the matter, a resolution has yet to be reached between it and the amusement park
The delay was caused, in part, by inaccurate information being delivered to Lagoon prior to the city council meeting held on October 2, 2012, when the proposed ordinance was on the agenda.
The vote was postponed and a special meeting was held on Oct. 9.
The city had previously made an agreement with Lagoon to allow the corporation to review the recommendations made by the planning commission prior to the council voting on the issue.
In light of a last minute discovery that Lagoon had not received documentation as promised, City Manager Dave Millheim said that a separate open meeting would be held.
The city planning commission has proposed restrictions on the types, styles, hours of use, and maximum illumination that would be allowed.
Lagoon dislikes many of the recommendations. Following the special meeting, its representatives decided that another proposal will have to be drawn up and submitted to the council for its meeting on Oct. 16.
