The Marshall Planning and Zoning commission considered two sign variances for two new businesses coming to Marshall. David Goodson, from Impact Signs, represented the two businesses at the meeting.

The commission voted in favor of a sign variance for Mustang Sallyz Saloon, located at 1665 W. Santa Fe Trail, allowing for four additional signs.

Three of the signs will run on the exterior wall of the Saloon, which used to be a skating rink. The 8- by 10-foot signs will have an aluminum frame and will not be lit. A 3- by 23-foot illuminated sign at the entrance will bear the saloon's name.

The commission also granted Picosita Grill and Pizzeria, located at 259 E. Morrow St. its request to have one additional small, non-lit wall sign. Goodson said the sign will only use six percent of the wall and will be located on the side of the restaurant facing Odell Avenue.

In other planning and zoning news, the commission scheduled a public hearing for a rezoning request at 566 and 568 N. Miami Ave., from MH-P Mobile Home Park to C-2 Highway Business.

James Miller, representing Home Savings and Loan of Norborne, said he intended to put a small mini storage unit on the property.

A public hearing on the rezoning request will take place at the commission's next meeting Tuesday, April 9.
