Background

 

The parcel is part of Shores Square Shopping Center and a larger plot that includes Folio Numbers 11-3206-011-0051 and 11-3206-011-0060.

 

The site is subject to a master sign agreement however, the applicant is requesting permission to install corporate signage that is not consistent with the master sign agreement.

 

The proposed sign is 18 feet wide and 2.5 feet in height.  The box sign has a black background with white lettering and red logo. The sign has an LED light source.

 

The proposed sign is: 18 feet X 2.5 feet = 45 square feet.

 

The 34 foot wide storefront has a 51 square feet sign allowance.

 

Analysis

 

The proposal is consistent with the technical provisions of the Zoning Code.

 

Recommendation

 

Planning and Zoning staff recommends APPROVAL of the site plan for signage with a finding that it is consistent with the technical provisions of the Code.  However, the Planning Board must make a finding that the proposed improvements are harmonious with the community, as required in Section 523 of the Code and, in that regard, may add further conditions or delete or modify staff recommended conditions, deny the application, or continue the item for future consideration.  Should the board find that the applicant merits approval, staff recommends that the following conditions apply:

 

1)      Applicant to meet all applicable code provisions at the time of permitting.

2)      Applicant to obtain all required building permits before beginning work.

3)      This zoning permit will lapse and become invalid unless the work for which it was approved is started within one (1) year of the signing of the development order by the board chair, or if the work authorized by it is suspended or abandoned for a period of at least one (1) year.
