The Leawood City Council unanimously approved a sign package for Park Place designed to increase awareness of the Park Place development and to help those doing business with retail and restaurant businesses at Park Place find the right garage to park in that gives them the quickest access to the business they are patronizing.
A “Park Place” sign will be added to the top portion of two of the parking garages, improved garage entrance identification signs, and signage indicating tenants most easily accessed from each garage will be added. . Signage internal to the development will also be added to help pedestrians and motorists locate the various tenants in the development. The sizing of the signage is all consistent with the current Leawood Development Ordinance. Due to the complexity of attaching the garage signage, the Council also approved an alternative lighting method for those signs that should maintain a tasteful, quality appearance
