Passages told to remove landscape sign


Passages Malibu rehab clinic recently created a sign of its logo using plants and landscaping on its property. Prompting complaints from local residents that the landscaped sign was too large, the rehab center has been told to remove the plants.

“Signs that are used for commercial advertising that people use any type of vegetation, rocks or other materials are a prohibited sign, and we have already contacted passages and let them know they have to remove it,” the City of Malibu’s planning director Joyce Parker-Bozylinski said. “It was clearly meant to represent their logo and we advised them it was a prohibited sign and they had to remove it.”
