(01-133) Staff Planner Hitchcock presented the staff report. She stated that Staff and the Design Review Board (DRB) recommend approval of the revised site plan including the signage. The site plan for this property was originally approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) with Staff and DRB recommendations and conditions in May 2000. Construction began in March 2001. In the course of site inspections Staff discovered that multiple changes had been made to the site. Staff cannot issue a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) for a site if it does not comply with the approved plan. In an effort to work with the applicant, the City granted a 60-day Temporary CO to allow for the applicant to obtain the necessary approvals. The Temporary CO expires Monday, August 6, 2001. The changes made to the site include a 2-foot sidewalk added along the drive-through area. The exit of the drive-through was expanded from 12 feet to 22 feet in width, a sidewalk was added to the southern service door to the drive-through, and there was a change to the proposed brick paved area to a concrete paving treatment. Also there was a request by the applicant to spell out Fazoli's in greenery on one of the P&Z Minutes August 2, 2001 Page 2 of 4
