Sec. 604: Site plan
approval-driveway

 

Mr. Berg explained the basis of the request, the site conditions, and recommended approval of the site plan with certain conditions. The applicants are requesting approval to install pavers for an existing driveway which is over the maximum width of 20' for residential driveways. They also want an additional curved, 11' semi circle driveway in the front as well as a connector of 32' on the right of way. Staff recommends keeping the driveway at 26' and installing a visual break of 2'x 5' for a landscaped/drainage area. Staff also recommends allowing an 11' circular driveway but not allow a connection on the right of way that will expand the existing paving to 32'. The connection to the existing driveway should be closer to the house coming off the existing 26' driveway. The applicant amended their proposal to keep the existing width of the driveway with the connected 11' semi-circular driveway and the visual break for a landscaped/drainage area. The amended proposal meets all code requirements. The Board inquired about the existing tree on the property. The tree is remaining for the purpose of the current application. The applicant, Richard Blinderman, was there to present his case. Mr. Blinderman explained the intentions for his original proposal. After a brief discussion, Mr. Crutchfield made a motion to approve the amended application. Mr. Sastre seconded the motion. Motion passed 4-0.

Sec. 604: Sign
approval-Sec.
400/401: Schedule
of Regulations: new use / sign

Mr. Berg explained the basis of the request, the site conditions, and recommended approval of the request. The applicant is requesting approval for two signs: one on the building wall and one on the door. The wall sign will be red and be 96" long with 10" letters and an 18" logo. The Board members discussed issues of uniformity with all the signs on the building. They also discussed the issue of trademark logos and allowing them without changing the colors. The Board members stated that they wanted the wall sign and the logo on the wall sign to be green and white in order to match most of the signs on the building. The applicant, Michelle Belizares, was there to present the case. Ms. Belizares explained that the logo is the company's trademark and that it would be located at the end of the building where very visible. Mr. Crutchfield made a motion to approve the application. Mr. Sastre seconded the motion for discussion. The Board members discussed issues of consistency with the signs and billboard advertising. They discussed how the Village's trend consist small businesses not meant to attract large crowds of people that do not live in Miami Shores. After further discussion, the Board members agreed that a green and white sign on the wall that describes the business would be more harmonious. The logo and the color can remain on the door in order for the public to recognize the trademark. The Board members voted on Mr. Crutchfield's motion and the motion failed 1-4. All the Board members except Mr. Crutchfield voted no. Mr. Crutchfield amended his motion to approve the proposed sign on the door with the trademark logo and colors and approve only a green and white sign stating "State Farm" on the facade. Motion passed 5-0.
