No Conditions.

1. Applicant is instructed to advise owner and operator that window signs require Design Review Approval and a permit. No new window signs should be erected without appropriate review and permit.

2. Applicant is instructed to advise owner and operator that we consider LED window trim to be an aesthetic alteration to the storefront and subject to design review. Committee would not recommend approval of LED trim if it is proposed.

3. Applicant may alter canopy design by breaking it up into multiple canopies/awnings, or keeping it a single canopy, as presented.

4. Suggest removing 'corner store' sign above entrance at NE corner, since this does not provide direct access to store.

5. Applicant is encouraged to study light warmth/wattage for the various fixtures so that all light on-site is coordinated.

6. Consider adding small, concrete bases to tree flood lights to protect against damage.

7. Bollards may be added, as needed, to prevent smash-and-grab ATM theft. Committee requests that any bollards installed be the minimum number necessary to effectuate security.

8. Verify UV rating of awnings. Committee suggests investing in a high-grade awning material to minimize maintenance and replacement needs.
