Staff Report

David A. Dacquisto AICP, Director, Planning and Zoning

Report Date

June 9, 2011





The applicant is proposing window signage consisting of white lettering.


The proposed window sign with the company name is 2.3 feet wide and 2.5 feet in height.  The proposed door sign is 2 feet wide and 3 feet in height.


The proposed signage is:

2.3 feet X 2.5 feet = 5.75 square feet

2 feet X 3 feet = 6 square feet

Total signage: 11.75


The 12.5 foot wide storefront has a 18.75 square feet sign allowance.



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 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.
