Review Type
Concept - Revision to Permit


No objection to concept design for alterations to paving materials, additional landscaping, and new signs as shown in supplemental drawings dated 20 November 2008 PROVIDED signs are back-lit as the previously approved signs. Internally-illuminated signs are not appropriate to the historic district and were disapproved. Recommend against concept design for trellis as revised, which has lost original character. Recommend retention of previous approved design for trellis with consideration for aluminum construction. File new submission of working drawings, including details and dimensions, with permit application for review by the Commission when ready.
