From: Molly Hitchcock To: Natalie Ruiz Date: 5/14/2004 9:21 AM Subject: Re: Comprehensive Plan & LIDO Annual Review CC: Jane Kee This means that everything will have to be decided upon (among staff), changed, reviewed internally, and to Legal in less than a week (next Thursday 20th). Do we want to push for this (other things beng pushed aside), bump the schedule back, or only give Legal one week? >>> Glenn Brown 5/13/2004 11:52:17 AM >>> Molly, I am guessing this will be a lengthy document. Please be sure you build into the schedule that Legal will have plenty of time to review it (a couple of weeks) before it goes to P&Z then Council. Thanks. Glenn Glenn D.

I met with Jennifer P. and Natalie about a week ago on it also. Basically, we were looking at three issues: 1) end cap (side of building) signage. We would add some language that allowed a second sign on the end -cap of any side of a building that faced a r -o -w 2) methodology for calculating square footage of a sign. We were considering allowing the calculation to be made for each individual letter and /or logo. This is the methodology used by Bryan. If we went that route, we may have to lower the 2 square feet we currently allow. 3) signs that cannot be read (visibility) from the roadway >>> Molly Hitchcock 5/18/2004 11:56:54 AM >>> In regards to his second point, I'm not sure what Glenn is referencing. Do you? >>> Glenn Brown 5/11/2004 12:08:13 PM >>> Molly, Two things come to mind. First I had asked Kelly several months ago to prepare an ordinance removing the prohibition to Live Oak trees being within 30 feet of a street ROW from the LIDO. He said he would take care of it with the anniversary clean -up items. This has also been mentioned to Steve Beachy, Ross, and Mark Smith so they know that it is coming. Secondly, seems like Kelly and Kim had worked on some language for changes to the sign ordinance that was to be incorporated into the other changes this summer. Thanks for your help. Let me know if have any questions. Glenn D.

This keeps the separate 16 square foot in area fuel pricing still an option. This will allow them to have some area on the free standing sign as well. Let me know if you are confused.

I've attached some information regarding the SOE ordinance and specific issues relating to Silk Stocking. There are two main issues that we have been dealing with over the past several months. The first deals with broader issues related to the current SOE requirements and providing adequate locations for such uses. The second issue deals with Silk Stocking specifically and pending litigation. There are several ways that we could deal with Silk Stocking specifically and legitimize their existing operation. If the decision is to allow Silk Stocking to remain, I would suggest that we exempt them from the ordinance in their current location. The code can be amended to provide an exemption provision for this specific property. (We would need to consult with Harvey on this issue to make sure he agrees that this is a viable option.) Exempting them from the ordinance allows Silk Stocking to continue as a non - conforming use and deals with both locational and site specific compliance issues. We could modify the code in its current state to deal with the immediate needs of Silk Stocking. At some point in the near future, we could deal with the broader issues of the ordinance that impact the City as a whole. If exempting this one property is not a legally viable option, we should consider removing the amortization provisions in the ordinance altogether. This does have implications for the Adult Video site that we need to fully explore with our legal staff. I'll see you at 2:30 to discuss these issues further.
