The City of Monroe is in the dark ages on Electronic Changeable signs - and apparently they want to stay there forever.

Maybe Custer will come back someday and then they will change their mind on them.

Public House opened this past weekend.  We had lunch there on Sunday.  The food and service was good, but I thought the menu, especially for dinners, was a bit limited.  Hopefully it gets expanded.  That being said, I would go back.

Glad to hear that ell...

we'll give 'em a try...

we went looking for them to be open one evening last week but they were't quite there yet ;) ;) ;)

I know that they denied the billboards on Telegraph when Adams Outdoor Advertising wanted to convert them to jumbotrons...and that was a good denial.

I thought Public House was an odd name for a family restaurant...sounded more like a soup kitchen!

I don't disagree with that Brian.

I'm talking about the smaller changeable signs that are a staple in most communities now.

Nope - Monroe still wants you to trudge out and change the letters on a pole - or you can have snow up to your waist.

That is better somehow better in City Councils viewpoint.

However - hire an enforcement officer to actually uphold the sign code?  Nope.  Not going to do that either.

The one here has definitely been improved aesthetically from what you can see from the road driving by!

I'm pretty sure the "Public House" name is of European origins....

BRD - Erie - you guys didn't see them around Europe? 

I seem to remember a few.

Enforcement is the problem!
Some with legal changeable message signs still refuse to follow the rules, like only changing once per hour. On weekends they have them scrolling or flashing, and that is distracting to drivers, and is one of the main reasons for the strict rules.
They were also not welcome in the more "historic" areas. Not to compare Monroe to anyplace else, but you don't see these signs in most historic cities, except in the more commercial areas, like Telegraph here!

I think just one of those jumbotrons should be allowed and it can only run 2 advertisements.  One for the Hot Dog Cart, and the other from LZBoy showing a baby laughing then switch to a picture of the headquarters and then a thank you Monroe statement congratulating them on 8 new janitorial jobs added to the local payroll.

So - it was proposed that way - and they didn't want to do even that.

Kind of a waste of time to work on a sign ordinance in this town if you ask me.

One - they are afraid to do anything.  Two - even if they do, they won't enforce it anyway.

Here in Summerfield Twp.  We have a specific sign ordinance that addresses electronic signage and how many times per time segment the message can change.... and we enforce it.

My wife and I looked over the menu last night.  You're right about it being limited for dinner!  I think the first time I go in I'll order a Mac & Cheese dinner with a side of 'Mac & Cheese' ;) ;) ;)

The cedar planked salmon sounds good...

I wonder if those salmon will be fresh from the River Raisin ??? ??? ???

I saw a whole truck load of cedar logs go by yesterday...   

must be they ordered a lot of those cedar planks 8) 8) 8)

Somehow the 'blood orange' san pellegrino water just does not sound appealing to me...  maybe on a full moon night it will be popular in Monroe though ;) ;) ;)

Imagine that - enforce it.

How hard is it to video tape the sign changing and write a ticket?

Oh - I forgot.  The inspector lives in Dearborn.  He isn't around and everyone knows it.
