Even though it's not open yet, Sun Prairie's Nitty Gritty is asking for approval for its new sign.

The Sun Prairie Plan Commission on Nov. 12 will consider a request by the Nitty Gritty for an amendment to an approved Precise Implementation Plan that would allow a projecting sign to exceed the maximum size and location standards of the Central Commercial zoning district. The Nitty Gritty will be located at 315 E. Linnerud Drive when it reopens the former Cannery Grill location, which is expected to open in mid-November.

Other Sun Prairie Plan Commission items include:

• A public hearing on a request by Faith, Hope and Love Church. City Planning Director Scott Kugler said the request seeks approval of a one-year extension to an existing Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the installation of site improvements associated with an indoor institutional use on property located at 211 Linnerud Drive.

• A public hearing will be held on a request by Sun Prairie Utilities and Mart Enterprises. The joint request seeks city approval of an amendment to an approved CUP to allow the construction of utility lines and related facilities within a permanently protected green space on property located at 646 S. Thompson Road.

Kugler said this request, if given final subsequent approval by the Sun Prairie City Council, extends a permit approved earlier this year based on an updated wetland study that was completed on the site.

The Sun Prairie Plan Commission's regularly scheduled meeting will be held in the second floor Council Chambers of the Sun Prairie Municipal Building, 300 E. Main Street, at 7 p.m.
