Premier Bank Seeks Approval for Tower’s New Signage

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The city’s Design Review Committee will consider a request to replace the signage on the iconic Home Savings building downtown at its meeting Tuesday morning.

Gardner Signs Inc., Toledo, submitted the request on behalf of Premier Bank, which was formed by the merger of Home Savings Bank and First Federal Bank of the Midwest, based in Defiance.

The banks completed the merger in February. The merged institution announced its new name in April and unveiled its new logo and branding just over a month ago. 

Gardner Signs will remove the “Home Savings” signage on all four sides of the building at 275 W. Federal St. and replace them with LED channel lettering, according to documents presented to the committee. The north and south sides of the tower will feature the bank’s stylized “P” logo accompanied by the “Premier” name. The east and west sides will have the logo by itself. 

Representatives of Premier and Gardner are expected to address the committee, which will meet virtually.

Additionally, the committee will consider applications by Victorian Players Inc. for an entrance vestibule addition to Hopewell Theater, 792 Mahoning Ave., and by Youngstown State University and Lit Youngstown to paint a mural on a 136-foot concrete wall along Andrews Avenue from East Federal Street to East Rayen Avenue.
