Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for proposed projecting (blade) sign. Existing projecting sign, which was NOT approved, must be removed no later than 31 January 2004. See previous recommendation under OG 98-159. No objection to retention of letters reading "L'Occitane" on valance of awning, which had been installed without review or permit. Note is made that permit application is pending final zoning review. Any modifications to the approved design as a result of further review in the permit process must be submitted to the Commission for approval.
