Precision Tune Auto Care Outdoor LED Digital Sign in Lino Lakes, Minnesota
“From start to finish, Mike Kasbohm’s commitment to providing a solution that worked for me and my business was apparent and set him appart from his competition – especially when it meant having to slow things down and work with the city for a Variance – treating my business as if it were his own. I highly reccomend Mike for your dynamic display sign needs!”
Paul Selbitschka, Owner of Precision Tune Auto Care was deep in plans for opening his new location on Lake Drive in Lino Lakes, MN, and knew he wanted to incorporate a dynamic LED display into his new outdoor monument sign. He wanted to be able to directly control his own digital marketing platform to better engage with the vehicles passing by, as well as recruit new employees for his highly rated and growing business.
During his initial site analysis, Kasbohm uncovered that at the time, unfortunately, the existing sign code limited the dynamic LED display (or Electronic Message Center) area to only 20 square feet. After considering the speed limit and lines-of-site among other factors, Kasbohm recommended holding off and seeing whether he could affect some change at the city level to increase the size of the EMC for safer and more effective messaging.
Kasbohm went to work communicating with City Planners and Council members on Selbitschka’s behalf with supporting documentation, discussions, and multiple meetings.
Working together Selbitschka and Kasbohm presented at Public City Council meetings and were successful in gaining agreement from the city to increase the permittable dynamic display area by 60% by way of an Amendment to the Lino Lakes Sign Code.
