City of Bryan asking Planet K to remove sign by Sept. 6

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - The city of Bryan is asking a business owner to remove an sign from its property.

A city spokeswoman on Monday said the large sign outside the Planet K store on Texas Avenue does not have the proper permit, and the city has asked that it be removed by Thursday, September 6. The company does have the opportunity to file an appeal.

Planet K is an Austin-based head shop that sells tobacco products, drug paraphernalia, and pornography. Some neighbors last week expressed concern to KBTX about it, saying the land isn't zoned for that kind of business.

Planet K has been silent about the issue until this past weekend.

On its Facebook page, the company on Saturday linked our previous report and said "Culture Wars again .... this will end the same way Bee Cave's attempt to 'keep Planet K out' did... we'll be open soon!"

Bee Cave is a small town outside of Austin that went to court to try and keep a Planet K out of its community. After a long, legal and expensive fight, the city settled, and Planet K now sits in the center of town.
