Sign for "JoS.A.Bank Clothiers", awnings, plaque and graphics
Review Type


The Commission regrets that signs and awnings were installed prior to review. No objection to issuance of permit for proposed sign scheme composed of back-lit letters reading "JoS A. Bank", awnings within masonry openings with lettering on valance over center show window only, one plaque, and vinyl letters applied to glass as shown in supplemental drawings dated 11 June 2013 which indicate letters no taller than 16 inches high pin-mounted on wall above entry doors. Attachment must be made through mortar joints only. The internally-illuminated letters and the blade sign are not compatible to the character of the historic district, were not approved and must be removed no later than 31 October 2013.
