AGENDA ITEM NO. 4: Presentation, discussion, and possible action on proposed signage for Midnight Rodeo (previously Shadow Canyon) located at 217 University Drive in Northgate (CH 05 -196). Staff Planner Crissy Hartl presented the staff report to the Board stating that the applicant is requesting to remove the existing "Shadow Canyon" signage and replace it with a "Midnight Rodeo" neon sign. The applicant is proposing to replace the existing 21' x 6' wooden sign with a dark blue sign canister measuring 12' x 9.5' (114 square feet). Ms. Hartl stated that the applicant is also proposing to cover all but 23.5 square feet, which meets the maximum size for an attached sign at this location. The applicant is going to use materials similar to the existing facade to cover the marquis signage. Ms. Hartl stated to the Board that the neon sign will include yellow, blue, red and white neon colors. The Northgate Design Guidelines recommend that sign material, style and color should compliment the building facade. Ms. Hartl expressed to the Board that staff's opinion is that the proposed signage does not compliment the architecture of the building. Board member Alan King asked for clarification of the proposal. Ms. Hartl explained that the Shadow Canon sign would be removed and replaced with a canister for the Midnight Rodeo sign. Chairman Scott Shafer asked if there was a picture of the finished sign as proposed. The applicant David Kesler explained to the Board that there are two marquees one that faces University and one that faces Boyett. The marquee on University Drive would be covered completely and the Boyett marquee would be reduced in size to meet requirements.

DOC Mr. Wells motioned to approve the use of the neon as a neon graphic sign without the canister and for the neon to be mounted in the confines of the front surface of the tower. He also motioned to approve the covering up of the marquee on the University Drive side to match the existing elevation and for the Boyett side to be reduced to 23.5 square feet with materials being consistent with the existing facade. Mr. King seconded the motion which passed unopposed (5- 0). Before the applicant, David Kesler, left the meeting, he modified a picture showing alterations of what the actual signs / marquees would look like in regards to the motion.
