4/10/20170 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Askin said the applicant is requesting retroactive approval for painting over signs. The building was built in 1901. The sign was installed in 2014 and an application was applied for in May 2014, post-sign installation. The applicant was found guilty of failure to obtain a COA in 2016. Staff recommends partial approval - applicant can keep one of the two signs naming the establishment (either the horizontal or the vertical one). Atty. Michael Whitcomb - sign was created by a local artist and is on rainboard. He went before BOZA for a dimensional variance as they considered all 4 signs as one (awning signs considered the same sign). Robert Wiltjen - owner - the owner was unaware of the laws and realized it post-signage. Mr. Askin said that the Board of Zoning Appeals required that HPC had to approve the signs. Grant with staff's recommendation to keep one of the four signs.
