The following changes were agreed upon:

  • Change (1) to allow nameplates listing builder and date of construction on a home in HR-1 and HR-2.
  • Change (2) to prohibit portable and banner signs and to correct reference. Change also required to 8.08.00(A)1
  • Make (3) consistent with other palette language, which I will be developing
  • Prohibit Billboards in the district

  • Sign approvals must go through the AAB
  • On premise commercial signs no higher than 8 feet, less than 32sf, leading edge of sign setback 5 feet from property line, construction materials primarily wood with masonry footers & pillars… sign should be congruous with the construction of building
  • Wall signage 5% per elevation on each road frontage not to exceed 16sf; mural shall be considered wall signage
  • Discussed prohibiting temp signs, but agreed to allow Article 8 language suffice
