Joan Hepsworth and Carolyn Carter;NEW DAY SPA,1287 Cherry Valley Road

The applicants are requesting a change in the sign differing from the one originally

approved, They wish to install a permanent 30 sq.ft. ground sign in the front yard constructed of

a lightweight synthetic stone and a temporary sign to be hung across the permanent sign. The

temporary sign will say something like ' opening soon"and colors will be dark green letters on a

white background. Photographs and colors and materials were shown by Ms. Hepsworth at the

meeting.

Mr. Salvage thinks the sign is too big, although he likes the new design better and finds

it more traditional than the first one. Ms. Hepsworth will check to see if she can order a smaller

size. Other members agreed that the sign is too large. The 10 sci. ft. maximum will not include

the base nor the keystone.

The sign will be illuminated from the ground on one side and will be parallel to the road.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION SUBJECT TO THE SIGN

BEING REDUCED PROPORTIONATELY SO THAT THE FACE OF THE SIGN IS 10 SQ.FT.

OR LESS. THE FACE OF THE SIGN IS THAT AREA ABOVE THE BASE STONE AND

BELOW THE KEYSTONE. APPROVAL IS ALSO SUBJECT TO REVIEW BY THE VIILLAGE

PLANNER OF THE REVISED PLAN. ANY DEVIATIONS OF THE SIGN WILL BE SUBMITTED

TO THE GPC. MOTION WAS SECONDED BY MR. WILKENFELD AND UNANIMOUSLY

APPROVED.

Dan Rogers and Barbara Franks, 210 East Maple Street -Finding of Fact Approval

Members discussed the Finding of Fact prepared by the Village Planner and had several

suggestions for strengthening it, particularly regarding the size and mass of the structure. It

would be important to stress the danger of precedent- setting in this situation. Members

requested a revised Finding of Fact for the next meeting.
