City Council Will Vote On New Tourism Mural On Side Of Power Plant


One of the most visible features for drivers heading north on Interstate 55 & 72 could soon become a huge city-owned billboard for Springfield’s Lincoln sites. 

 

Aldermen are poised to approve a zoning variance sought by the city to paint a nearly 3500-square-foot sign on the side of the Dallman Power Plant.  The sign will read “Visit… Mr. Lincoln’s Home Town, Springfield, Exit 98B,” and will also include a silhouette of Lincoln’s profile. 

 

If the variance is approved by aldermen Tuesday, Ace Sign Company will paint the sign after being awarded a $24,000 contract for the project.
