MEDINA – Takeform Architectural Graphics is proposing a 15,500-square-foot addition to its Maple Ridge Road manufacturing site in Medina.

The company presented the site plan for the addition to the Medina Planning Board on Tuesday. The board accepted the site plan as complete and set a public hearing for 7:05 p.m. on Sept. 5 for the plan. That hearing will be at City Hall.

Takeform moved to the former Trek building in Medina as part of an expansion about four years ago at 11601 Maple Ridge Rd. The company continues in growth mode and is looking to add 50 jobs over the next three years, village officials said.

Takeform specializes in signage design and architectural graphics, including wayfinding design and interior & exterior signage for healthcare, offices, educational institutions and other customers.

As part of the site plan, Takeform would put on an addition and add 40 parking spaces, as well as at least four trees.

The company’s plan was presented on Tuesday by BME Associates, an engineering firm in Fairport. Takeform is eager to get started on construction, BME said.

The Medina Planning Board referred the site plan to the Orleans County Planning Board for its review on Aug. 24.
