ProMedica has agreed to dim the lights on its sign at Flower Hospital by 50 percent, but area residents say it's not enough. Sylvania is considering alterations to its code on signs.
Flower Hospital may be keeping its controversial neon-green signs, but the outdoor lighting has inspired Sylvania leaders to consider regulations that may prevent other companies in the city from following ProMedica's example.
Sylvania City Council's zoning and annexation committee directed city administrators Tuesday to craft language for the city's sign code for decorative lighting such as that at Flower.
The lighted signs generated significant complaints from the neighborhood after installation early this year.
Committee Chairman Doug Haynam offered a few proposals to help clear up confusion in the future.
