Light panels that will show moving images atop four office buildings at CityPlace won the approval of the Overland Park Planning Commission Monday, with some commissioners saying the display could become an iconic part of the city's identity.

The panels, which are incorporated into the buildings' design, took a step forward in a long approval process with the commission's 9-1 vote to approve a special use permit. The full city council will have the final say.


Developer Ken Block and legal counsel Curtis Holland sought to reassure the commission that the rooftops near U.S. Highway 69 and College Boulevard would be tasteful and consistent with the city's long-range vision.

"This isn't going to be a Vegas thing. There's no blinking lights or fast moving lights. It's not like that," Hollad sais. "It's all going to be done very appropriately."

Block reminded the commission that a committee of six or seven people with art backgrounds will review what gets put up.
