The Board of Zoning Appeals in Grand Rapids, Mich., has ruled against a local self-storage business that wants to put up an electronic sign to post digital messages for passersby. Facility operator JES Management requested a variance to install the sign, saying it was necessary to increase awareness of the business among potential customers. Members of the zoning board disagreed, saying it would open the door for other businesses that want variances to the city's sign ordinance, which bans electronic signs in industrial districts.
