Review Type


No objection to issuance of permit for the proposed construction of a two-story Commerce Bank branch building, which will require the demolition of the Reed Electric building, a non-contributing structure to the historic district, or to proposed sign scheme composed of one back-lit sign mounted below second floor windows to right of entrance facing on Wisconsin Avenue, and one back-lit sign mounted at cornice level on south facade with letters no taller than 12-inches high reading 'Commerce Bank'. The roof top flagpoles for cellular antennas are not part of this permit application. Working drawings conform to previously approved record drawings under cases OG 05-185 and OG 05-251. Note: Because the application is pending final zoning review, any subsequent modifications to the approved design must be re-submitted to the Commission for approval. Erect a materials sample panel on site, facing south, with the use of lighter color mortar, for review by the Commission prior to ordering materials. File new submission of permit application with detailed drawings for roof top flagpoles encasing cellular antennas for review by the Commission when ready.
