Report Date

February 18, 2010





Applicant is requesting approval for internally lite wall signage for a storefront on NE 2nd Avenue.


The logo is green and white and the channel lettering is white.


The storefront has approximately 52 feet of frontage on NE 2nd Avenue.  The B-1 District provides for 1.5 square feet of sign area per building front foot giving the storefront a sign allocation of  approximately 78 square feet.


The proposed sign is 2 feet in height and 19 feet in width. [2 feet X 19 feet = 38 square feet].


The applicant is requesting approximately 38 square feet of signage for the storefront.




The proposed signage is within the sign allocation for the store front.


The signage is well integrated and harmonious with the fašade of the building.


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




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 obtain all required building permits.

2)      Applicant to comply with all applicable code provisions at the time of permitting.

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.
