VIII.        Approval of Minutes

 

A.       January 21, 2010

 

Mr. Guglielmo made a motion to approve the January 21, 2010 minutes as written.

 

Ms. Sesher seconded the motion.

 

No discussion was held.

 

The motion passed unanimously with a vote of 4-0-1 with Ms. Dudney abstaining as she was not present at the January 21st meeting.

 

 

IX.              New Business

 

A.    Consider and take action on HDC10-02 (Replica One Printing), a request for a waiver to the requirement that signs be limited to displaying the name of the business, address and logo and a Certificate of Appropriateness for a sign permit for a ground sign at 901 East Main Street.

Mr. Glasper, Planner with the City, restated the staff report and explained this item came to staff?s attention as a result of complaints submitted to Code Enforcement. He explained that the applicant is requesting a waiver to the sign ordinance that limits a sign to display the name of the business, address and the logo on the sign. The applicant indicated that the current sign is a replacement to the previous sign damaged by Hurricane Ike and is grandfathered under the ordinance that was in place upon installation.  Mr. Glasper pointed out however, that the grandfathering only applies to the name of the business and the telephone number as was on the previous sign and does not apply to the additional text placed on the current sign.  Mr. Glasper further pointed out that prior to Hurricane Ike the sign had a reader board in place but was damaged by the hurricane as well.   

 

Ms. Sesher made a motion to deny HDC10-02 (Replica One Printing).

 

Ms. Dudney seconded the motion.

 

A discussion was held regarding the sign and the sign ordinance requirements.  Mr. Linenschmidt advised that staff would need to coordinate with the Building department in regard to the reader board sign to verify whether or not grandfathering for the sign is considered abandoned since it has been longer than six months past the event.

 

Mr. Robert Slezak, applicant, came forward to discuss with the Board various sign options allowed within the sign ordinance.  Mr. Linenschmidt recommended a site visit by staff to discuss with the applicant allowable signage options.

 

With no further discussion, Ms. Hall called for a vote.

 

The motion to deny passed unanimously with a vote of 5-0-0.

 

V.          Public Hearing

             A.      Hold a public hearing and take action on HDC10-06 (Annette?s Emporium Handcrafted Gifts Request #3),  a request for a Certificate of Appropriateness to revise the exterior color of the structure on approximately 0.5 acres zoned ?CN-RNC? (Neighborhood Commercial with a Residential Neighborhood Conservation Overlay), legally described as Lots 3 and 4 of the Hanby Subdivision, generally located south of East Main Street (Farm to Market Road 518) and east of Iowa Avenue with the approximate address being 1015 East Main Street.

Mr. Linenschmidt, Senior Planner with the City, noted a correction for the agenda that the case number for this item should be HDC10-05.   He explained the applicant is requesting to repaint the exterior trim of the building and distributed paint color samples to the Board.  A discussion followed regarding the proposed color and the areas of the structure to be repainted.

Ms. Hall opened the public portion of the hearing at 6:41 p.m.
