The board then moved on to consider individual cases on the agenda.
The first case was Emerald Coast Ice Vending (2008-NAARB-003). Mr. Randy Berry represented the project. The Board reviewed the new proposed site plan and elevations. Mr. Berry requested the base remain white, vice being painted blue as was requested at the previous meeting; his concern was that wear and tear will scuff the blue. Ms. Sharon Bryant made a motion to approve the project as revised. Mr. Kenneth Walter seconded. The Board unanimously approved the project as revised.
The second case was O’Reilly Auto Parts (2008-NAARB-004). A representative from the district office was present. The Board discussed the post height, the post appearance, and the lighting of the sign. The post height cannot exceed 10’. Mr. Gary Chisholm, Southern Signs, suggested a “pole skirt”; this is an aluminum skirt that exceeds 2’ on each side of the pole. Ms. Joanne Connor made a motion to approve the project with the following changes:
· Free-standing signage
A decorative pole cover to be used
Sign lettering can be backlit, however red sign face and the reader board cannot be illuminated
The pole height cannot exceed 10 feet
· Building wall signage – green lettering to be back-lit; white background not to be illuminated
Ms. Sharon Bryant seconded. The Board unanimously approved the project, with the changes.
