Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the exact sign is in the book as an example of good signage. The proposal is to replace the existing sign with two electronic message panels, which would result in the removal of decorative elements and obscuring the columns. Ald. Bauman feels changeable signs are a technology that can't be avoided. Mr. Askin knows the sign is post-1970 and might be from the 1980s. Ms. Hatala believes the sign was approved by HPC when it was first installed, although Mr. Askin could not find a record of this. Staff recommends denial, but might consider approval if the changeable sign was recessed and between the two columns. Zach Wenger - contractor - he did some surveying of the sign and the major benefit is to use it as a community-outreach tool with minimal staff time. He also is cognizant that the library has budgetary constraints. The commission would accept a smaller, electronic sign that fits within the current size of the sign. Mr. Wenger will research this.
