Zoning staff wants smaller Ryman billboard

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A zoning commission's staff in Nashville is recommending approval of expansion plans for the Ryman Auditorium with one alteration - that a proposed digital billboard be downsized.

The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/W7xm2H ) reports that Ryman Hospitality will have its expansion plan for the auditorium considered Wednesday at the Metro Historic Zoning Commission meeting.

The company wants to add a restaurant, new lobby and multimedia history tour, plus renovated box office, restrooms and concessions area. The project will cost about $14 million.

Historic Zoning Commission staff recently filed a review of the proposal and recommended approval as long as the proposed 236-square-foot electric sign is shrunk. The staff recommended downsizing the sign to 154 square feet.
