7/8/20190 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the applicants plan on installing the old Goldmann's sign as an art installation; the sign will be a pole-mounted, electrified structure. They are looking for a "yes" on the location and concept before continuing fundraising. Staff recommends conceptual approval. This does not qualify as a sign as one cannot advertise a business that doesn't exist. James Witkowiak - the sign will actually be at 545 W. Mitchell Street, not 529 and will not hang over the public way. A plaque will also be installed at the base of the sign with information on the Goldmann's building. Adam Levin - has a lot of connections in social media and worked on getting the sign back from North Carolina. There is a possibility that the individual who purchased the Goldmanns lunch counter will be given the sign; if this doesn't come to pass, the sign will be installed at this location. Where the sign will be located is in a small parking lot with no exit onto Mitchell Street.
