BGD’s Mary Solada Crucial to Controversial Billboard Removal
Dozens of Geist area residents appeared at a Marion County Board of Zoning Appeal (BZA) meeting on May 8, 2014, represented by Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP attorney Mary Solada, who argued that the controversial billboard needs to be removed. In particular, Solada asserted that the billboard violates a city ordinance by being placed too close to a stoplight and that the necessary 300 foot separation from a residential district was not maintained. The BZA voted 4-0 to revoke the permit.
The permit in question was issued late last year by the City of Indianapolis. In arguing that the permit should be revoked, “we beg you to apply what we think are the two basis to overturn the permit,” said Solada to the BZA. “Let the chips fall where they may when you do that.”
The permit holder has threatened to appeal the BZA decision to court.
A staff member for the Department of Metropolitan Development of the City of Indianapolis has maintained that the sign conforms to the ordinance requirements.
