A year after buying the biggest commercial development in La Cañada Flintridge, IDS Real Estate has won city approval of a new 15-foot sign, an important step in giving the Town Center a facelift.
The Planning Commission voted 3 to 0 to approve a new signage plan on Tuesday night. Two commissioners, Herand Sarkissian and Arun Jain, were not in attendance.
IDS will build a new 15-foot monument sign at the corner of Angeles Crest Highway and Foothill Boulevard and a 6-foot-high monument sign at Foothill Boulevard and Sport Chalet Drive, in front of the Home Goods store. It also will add directional signs for pedestrians and drivers within the center and internally lit wall signs bearing the names of merchants.
While the current signs read “Town Center,” the proposed 15-foot monument sign prominently features the words “La Cañada Flintridge” in large letters, with “Town Center” in a notably smaller font.
