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 s.f.). The applicant is also proposing to cover all but 23.5 s.f. of marquis signage for a total of 137.5 s.f., which meets the maximum size for an attached sign at this location. The applicant is planning on using materials similar to the existing facade to cover the marquis signage. 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. It is the opinion of staff that the proposed signage does not complement the architecture of the building. Staff Recommendation: Staff recommends denial for this request. Item Background: This property is considered high priority according to the Northgate Historic Resources Comprehensive Survey. Issues /Items for Review: 1. Signage • Type • Design • Placement Supporting Materials: 1. Location Map 2. Application 3. Copy of site plan and proposed signage
