MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The Downtown Memphis Design Review Board has postponed a meeting on Bass Pro's proposed signs for the Pyramid after the retailer requested more time to consider modifications to their design.
Brent Roler, Development Project Manager with the Downtown Memphis Commission, stated via email, "Bass Pro listened very carefully to the input provided by the DRB and public, and they are actively considering potential modifications to their signage application that would advance their business interests while also being sensitive to the community’s concerns."
The original proposal submitted to the city calls for 90 foot signs on each side of the Pyramid; that's 100 times larger than what's allowed by code. Several downtown businesses and residents voiced concerns over the prominent displays.
The DRB was scheduled to hold a specially-called meeting on Bass Pro's signage proposal on March 18; that meeting has been postponed until a revised design application has been submitted.
