The application is for a black and white,3.25 square foot sign on the existing signpost for the

former tenant's sign. Mr. Myers thought entarging the word P"odiatrista"nd his name and making the

telephone number smaller could improve the design. Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested omitting the area code,

and Mr. Salvage suggested a border around the sign. Dr. Eisenman said it would be luster board,a shiny

material with black letters applied. It will not be painted.

Mr. Lucier reminded the group that Mr. Pinkerton had at one time applied for a change ofuse for a

beauty shop and was approved for it. Ifthis were still in effect,it would require a change ofuse back to

what it had been previously. Mr. Salvage thought that technically,Dr. Raker o(wner)should make the

application to return the building to the former use.

CertifiedOil Company,433 SouthMain StreetR -enovation

Following up on several work sessions,Andy Furr presented formal plans for the razing and

renovations,taking into account all suggestions by GPC. Mr. Furr has been talking to IGA owners about

traffic patterns but has not come to final decision.

Mr. Furr explained the facade with dormers for the plan,which was redrawn according to

recommendations ofMr. Burriss. He also explained the lighting plan in detail,which met with praise

from GPC. If and when the Village adds streetlights in the area,two of Certified's pole lights closest to

South Main Street could be eliminated,but Mr. Furr wants to keep the ground light for the sign.

Mr. Myers had several suggestions on the landscaping plan,to which Mr. Furr agreed. The plan 2
