CONWAY — The Conway Zoning Board of Adjustment on Wednesday unanimously denied a variance for a sign at Leavitt’s Country Bakery.

The town had previously ruled that a billboard-sized artwork created by Kennett High students that had been erected over the Conway bakery last June met the definition of a sign under the town’s zoning ordinance and because it exceeds the town’s sign size limits it needed a variance.

It would be unfair to throw brickbats at the Town of Conway's governing apparatus as to the outcome that was achieved regarding the student artwork. Town leadership has, instead, my empathy for the lack of imagination its collective thought process is bound up in. Sad indeed.

Is there a way that the artwork could be reduced in size to meet the ordinance?
