We are requesting that this case be reheard, as the original case was denied based upon evidence presented that was insufficient to demonstrate the hardship posed by the applicable section of the Unified Development Code. The new storefront, which in fact was reviewed and approved through the Planning and Zoning Division, is now complete. Actual photo's of the canopy feature as well as a visit to the site may very well better demonstrate the restriction the applicable section of the ordinance imposes on Target by not allowing the sign to be mounted on the architectural canopy feature. The proposed signage, which is a new national brand image and trademarked sign, when mounted on any other location on the building, would not allow Target to display the maximum sign area permitted by the Uniform Development Code which places an undue hardship on Target that is not commonly imposed on other properties. We ask that you reconsider your original decision of denial of the variance request and allow for this case to be re- presented with new information and exhibits to better demonstrate our case. Should you have any questions in this matter, please feel free to contact me at 800 -284- 3284 ext 232 and I will be glad to discuss any information that may help to clarify this issue. Respectfully submitted for your consideration. Sincerely, Boyd Hippenstiel SR.

REHEARING Applicants must have the ZBA's approval to present the same or a similar request regarding the same property after denial of such request by the ZBA. When a request is denied, within ten days of the denial, the applicant may request that the ZBA rehear the request at a future date. To make this request, the applicant must submit to the Administrator new information that was previously not available to the Board. Within the ten days, the Zoning Official will put the request to rehear on the next available ZBA meeting agenda. To decide to rehear a request, the ZBA must determine the information provided by the applicant is new and relevant to their decision point of a hardship(s) as a result of a property's special condition(s). ZBA approval to rehear a request requires a motion to rehear, a second to that motion, and passage by a majority of members present. The determination that information previously not available is relevant to a request's hardship and special condition does not necessarily indicate the eventual approval of a request. If the ZBA approves a request to rehear, the applicant must pay a new fee by an established deadline to be scheduled for a future meeting. IX. APPEAL DECISION If an applicant wished to appeal a ZBA decision, he must file a petition with a court of record within ten (10) days after the decision is filed in the Planning Division Office.
