MANATEE -- Manatee County commissioners Thursday OK'd a fancy new digital electronic billboard at the Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex.
The commission also approved a number of proposed revisions to the county Land Development Code concerning regulation of electronic billboard signs in general.
The applicant for the ice and sports complex, MJ Squar, LLC, won approval of a new sign that will cover 672 square feet (48 feet by 14 feet) and tower 63 feet high, according to county documents.
It would replace the existing pole sign along the east side of Interstate 75, on the complex's property just north of the Ellenton Premium Outlets mall at U.S. Hwy. 301 and Interstate 75
