Daytona City Commission Approves Upgrade For Municipal Stadium Sign

By on October 4, 2017 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FLUpdate:  The Daytona Beach City Commission unanimously approved a new LED Electronic Message Center (EMC) sign for the municipal stadium on LPGA during the Commission’s Wednesday night meeting.

The EMC will take the place of the current sign located at 3917 LPGA Blvd. The contract for the construction of the sign is with Certified Signage, Inc. and will cost the City $111,980. The electronic sign will supplement the City’s street banner program and will announce important community events, public information announcements, and even emergency alert information.

The Commission was also scheduled to discuss potentially approving a $181,743 work order towards the design of the First Step Shelter. The work order would enlist Hall & Ogle Architects, Inc. to complete the plans for the design of the building. That discussion was pulled from the agenda as the meeting began.

Previously, the City has proposed adding EMC signs to several other locations such as at the base of the Halifax River Bridge and at the corner of George Engram Blvd. and Nova Rd., with the intent of promoting city events. Agenda items pertaining to these proposed signs were removed from the agenda at previous meetings in July, which you can read about here.

The Daytona Beach City Commission will also discuss potentially approving a $181,743 work order towards the design of the First Step Shelter. The work order would enlist Hall & Ogle Architects, Inc. to complete the plans for the design of the building, not the actual construction. The agenda item explains that this order is within the $2,000,000 budget of the shelter.

While this item is on the agenda for the October 5 meeting, the Deputy Public Works Director, David Waller, recommends that it be pushed back until the November 1 meeting.
