Warren County commissioners Tuesday balked at a proposed gigantic sign that would announce the presence of the planned racino near the Ohio 63 and I-75 interchange.

The proposed sign would stand 199 feet and 6 inches tall, nearly four times that of the nearby mammoth Jesus statue in front of Solid Rock Church on Interstate 75, said Michael Yetter, Warren County Zoning Supervisor and Stan Williams, executive director of the Warren County Regional Planning Commission. The sign would contain a 300-square-foot LED display and a 300-square-foot name plate and logo on both the north and south facing sides.

The city of Monroe had also written a formal complaint against the sign, Yetter said. Even though the racino and sign are not within Monroe’s jurisdiction, city officials felt it would conflict with the aesthetic created by Monroe’s own signage laws, which prohibit signs greater than 100 feet tall and 225 square feet in size.

Plans call for construction of the racino to begin late this year with a targeted opening date of early 2014.
