Sandwich Board Discussion:

Ms. Garrett brought up the fact that that the regulations

merely state that signs must be 2'x4';perhaps other standards

should be in place also. Mr. Huey proposed that we suggest

guidelines against which applicants may apply for permits; this

would also simplify GPC judgments for these applications. Mr.

Huey volunteered to put in writing some guidelines regarding

appearance, maintenancer/epair, location, and the best way to

handle changeable letters. These guidelines would not necessarily

be codified.

Nancy Graham, The James Store, 124 E. Broadway -Sandwich Board

Announcements

Mr. Tailford showed pictures of a possible new sign to be

placed at all entrances to the village. Signs at other villages

were discussed, and members had some suggestions for the

designer, Mr. Kessler. The signs should provide information

easily read in the smallest possible size and should be in a

muted color. Ms. Robertson thought the words "established 1805"

could be added.

Mr. Huey reported that he had seen informational arrows

added to roads to point out fire hydrants in a town where he

visited and thought it was a good idea.

Next Meeting: February 27, 7 p. m. -joint meeting between
