Emanuel wants to limit signage along Chicago River
Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to make sure more signs don’t pop up along the Chicago River like the one at Trump Tower.
The Trump sign is nearly 2900 square feet and sits about 200 feet up.
To stop that from happening again, the mayor is proposing a new Chicago River Corridor Special Sign District.
It would allow signs on buildings along the river but it would cut the size to 550 square feet.
Also, signs would have to be placed directly below the building’s highest roof line.
The ordinance would not affect the Trump sign which was approved by both the Daley and Emanuel administrations.
