Mr. Kirkland; The above referenced ordinance section rcada: "Freestanding signs shall be limited to the restrictions of Section 7.4, Signs, but shall not exceed the height of the building." it is the interpretation of the Administrator that in the case that there is more than one building height within the building plot, as it is determined for the purposes of signage, the height of the freestanding sign shall be no taller than the height of the building that is located most near to the sign. It is the Administrator's opinion that this interpretation is consistent with the intent of the Overlay District and its restrictions. The purpose statement for the Overlay District reads: "This district is established to enhance the image of the gateways and key entry points, major corridors, and other areas of concern, as determined by the City Council, by maintaining a sense of openness and continuity." The Administrator believes that in order to achieve continuity between building height and sign height within the Overlay District, the sign must be limited to the height of the closest building. if you have any questions regarding this matter, please give me a call at 979.764.3570.
