Mr. Arevalo restated the staff report for this item.  He gave a brief history of the proposed sign explaining that a variance for the sign was approved previously a few years ago but the sign was never installed. He said the applicant has since changed the design of the sign and is requesting another variance to the Sign Ordinance.  He voiced several concerns of staff regarding the current request and added that the applicant had also met with Tony Allender, Director of Planning and Research, in an attempt to resolve various other issues regarding the sign.  Mr. Arevalo said Mr. Allender had expressed to him that should the variance be approved, he would like conditions in place such as a maximum sign height of 40-feet. 

 

Mr. Arevalo added that he had expected the applicant to be present but due to changes in meeting dates and various meetings with staff, the applicant may have not been notified of the current meeting date.

 

A discussion was held regarding the variance request and the history of the proposed sign.

 

Mr. Christiansen suggested that item IV-A be tabled since the applicant was not present.

 

Mr. Christiansen made a motion to table item IV-A to the next meeting.

 

Mr. Evans seconded the motion.

 

The Commission discussed issues regarding the sign that they would like to be addressed at the next meeting.

 

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

 

V.        Adjournment

Mr. Christiansen motioned to adjourn the meeting.
