When the Danbury Zoning Board of Appeals signed off on new signage for the upgraded Danbury High School,they did raise questions about an existing sign. City Engineer Dan Petrovich was asked about the rotating messages on the LED signoff Clapboard Ridge Road.
A Board member said when the LED sign was approved, it was only supposed to be changed once a day. The Zoning Enforcement Officer brought up the concern to Petrovich when he proposed the variances for larger building letters, and he contacted the school. The rotating messaging is being attributed to a change in school administrators, who weren't made aware of the details of the previous approvals.
The smaller LED sign for the new black box theater will be controlled by the school and has the capability for them to scroll through a number of performances or events. But Petrovich says the sign is far enough from the road he doesn't see it as a distraction issue.
The ribbon will be cut Monday on the massive renovation and addition project, which opens for the first day of classes on the 31st.
