Proposed Site for New Sign at Lamar Community Building

A new sign to announce community events is planned for the northeastern entrance to the Community Building.  The electric sign will face north and south just off the main parking lot and is being donated by Community State Bank.  The structure will be at least thirteen feet tall and almost 14 feet wide.   The electric sign currently on the west-facing wall of the community building will be taken down. The city also erected new batting cages at the ball field complex.
