A proposed electronic variable message sign in front of the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist church has some neighbors complaining. The church would like the lighted sign in order to better inform the public about services and activities but neighbors object. Sturgeon Bay Planning and Zoning administrator Chris Sullivan-Robinson said a permit for the sign has been denied by the city because of concerns voiced by neighbors.
Pastor David Leistra says the church is taking the concerns of neighbors seriously.
Leistra also said the church is working to find a sign design on which everyone can agree.
