New Business:

Richard Layton, 75 Westgate Drive -Temporary Sign

Ms. Mason introduced the application, stating the applicant would like permission to keep the

banner sign on a temporary basis for one year until he can design a new sign. It is a plastic canvas sign,

white with dark green letters,ca. 6 sq.ft.

Mr. Layton said he needs a temporary sign because he needs more time to design a permanent

sign.

Greg Ross,IGA,South Main Street

Ms. Mason said the applicant would like to replace the loading dock and repair the drainage

system. She added that she received today a letter of concern from the village engineers a{ ttacheda},nd it

should be considered as a condition for approval for approval,since application is in the FHOD. The

concrete slab would cover ca. 200 sq.ft.;a new rolling door will be installed, and the existing opening will

be filled in to fit the smaller door. The drainage system would have a 2'x2' catch basin with 60 pipe

leading to the creek.

Laura Andujar,contractor, sees no problems with the engineer's concerns. The existing wall is

deteriorating and needs to be repaired.

Betty Morrison,Westgate Antiques,129 Westgate Drive -Sign 1

1)The applicant is requesting a 2'x4' wooden sandwich board in the R.O.W. of Cherry Valley

and Westgate to direct people to her antique shop. This would replace the sign in existence now.

Mr. Lukco and others agreed that with several businesses on Westgate,a directory sign would be

preferable to a variety of different signs. Ms. Morrison thought the sandwich board could be temporary

until a joint sign is applied for. Owners were concerned about the cost. Mr. Myers stated that this one

GPC Minutes,August 9,1999

would have to be brought inside after working hours. We have to be careful about setting a precedent

about sandwich boards there.

Mr.Lavander,owner,is concerned about too many signs being applied for on his property and

worries about the liability issue. Therefore,the signs would have tobe in the ROW,unless the owners

could lease some land from him. He would be reluctant to mow it. That land is available and he does not

want to hinder a sale. Mr.Hickman stated that care mustbe taken to ensure visibility while offering

direction to businesses. Mr.Myers said ifthe sign is deemed to be a nuisance it will have to be removed.

The sign is very high and he asked whetherMs.Morrison could lower it to 3'from 4',and she agreed. It

was agreed to leave the exact location up to Village personnel. It would be taken in each night,and will

remain for 6 months only.

2)The applicant also requests a change in colors for her previously approved ground sign at the

shop,which were to be red background with white letters. Now the sign is red letters with yellow

background.

SECONDED,AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Ms. Mason said that the applicants want to change the second story of the house by raising a

portion of the roof ca. 3/E. Mr. Pietrafesa said extensive repairs were done by a previous owner. He did

some more renovations and now is ready to request Phase II to add a master suite with 3 windows and a

bath with 2 windows and 7/ E of head room. The windows will match existing windows. He is looking for

architectural integrity specific to the time period of both exterior and interior.

Mr. Myers said there were questions last time about the windows and the porch railing and the

overall massing. Mr.Burriss asked for clarification about coordination ofthe rear elevation with the left

side elevation. Mr. Pietrafesa said when the addition was done,there was an unusual jog to the left of the

porch roof resulting in a complex roof plan. They will use the existing footprint and there will be a trellis

added.
