Dear Mr. :
During a recent outdoor advertising sign investigation, it was brought to our
attention that your sign located at has been destroyed beyond allowable
limits. Highway Advertising Control Act of 1971 (225 ILCS 440) Section 3.08
states that replacing more than 60% of the uprights, in whole or in part, of a
wooden sign structure or more than 30% of the length above ground of each
broken, bent, or twisted support of a metal sign structure, is not considered normal
maintenance or repair; therefore, Registration/Permit No. on your sign is no
Please forward a current lease agreement, proof of ownership, and any other
supporting documentation to our office so that we can begin an appraisal process
to see if just compensation can be provided.
