Canyon State Academy Youth Village sign plan moves forward

The sign planned at Canyon State Academy. (Town of Queen Creek)

A comprehensive sign plan for the Canyon State Academy Youth Village was recently approved by the Queen Creek Planning and Zoning Commission.

The commission in a unanimous vote Jan. 9 approved the plan, requested by John Motley of Canyon State Academy/Rite of Passage, which is on approximately 100 acres at the southeast corner of Hawes and Rittenhouse roads.

The sign plan includes one double-sided 11.5-foot-tall monument sign along Rittenhouse Road with seven panels on each side: two for Junction Café, two for Repurposed Thrift, two for Next Gen Barber School and one for Sun Valley Community Church, Steven Ester, planner I, said in a memo to the commission.

“The proposed monument sign also includes an LED reader board on both sides for digital display and incorporates the Rite of Passage logo with The Village at Canyon State lettering across the top of the signage,” Mr. Ester said in the memo.

“The LED boards are a necessity to have as means of notification of current and ongoing events and will adhere to the Town of Gilbert regulations as there are no stipulated regulations per Queen Creek code,” Karen Schellinger, permit specialist for Signarama Chandler, said in a letter to the Town of Queen Creek.
