Minutes of May 10, 2004: Page 2, Change J (2) at bottom of page to read: "Does the definition Mr. Strayer provided us of a minor collector include traffic volume? All in favor of finding that this answer and its source are valid?
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS AMENDED; MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Binford Electric, 484 South Main Street - Lighting
Mr. Strayer said this is a continuation of the saga of the ATM lighting. They are asking for two pole lights and two ATM lights, down from the original four requested. He is also proposing using more architecturally significant poles than originally.
Mr. Burns described where the two pole lights would be located. There will be two 250-watt sconce lights on the north and south and they will remove the existing lights. Lights under the canopy will stay and over the door also. The two 12' pole lights will be 175 watts each.
When Mr. Wilkenfeld expressed concern about two poles, Mr. Burns said they are trying to downsize the poles and still get the required amount of light.
Mr. Burriss suggested trying the sconces for design and style. They will allow more light to spread than the current lights. He asked about color of the poles and was told they would be Granville Green. Mr. Burriss wants to see the bollards painted a matching color. He would be willing to go with two lights and one pole in the rear to try it out. He asked to see the last working drawing from the IGA plans for the parking lot. There was a centralized alley with lights
Mr. Parris thought the back lighting is fine but sees no need for the other pole. Lights from the IGA and gas station are sufficient, and they only place lights are needed are in back.
Mr. Riffle suggested one light with a higher wattage, and Mr. Burns asked for 250 watts.
Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested changing the lights on the building first and revisiting the back section if more lighting is needed.
Mr. Burriss asked about the other signage being the same color as the lamps, i.e., the sign reading "enter." We would probably push for landscaping also.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION 04-064 AS FOLLOWS: (1) REPLACE THE TWO WALPAKS WITH TWO SCONCES AS SHOWN IN THE DIAGRAM TONIGHT; (2) ONE 12' 250-WATT POLE LIGHT LOCATED IN BACK CENTERED ON THE GREENSPACE; (3) STRONGLY SUGGEST LANDSCAPING AROUND POLE AND BOLLARDS; (4) MATCH GRANVILLE GREEN ON POLE, "ENTER HERE" SIGN, AND BOLLARDS. MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Home Pleasures, 120 East Broadway - Awning sign
The store will move into the spot formerly rented by St. Germain. The sign on the drop of the awning will be replaced by a gold "Home Pleasures" sign with no logo.
