PB-06-18 – First Baptist Church – 58 Main St. Sign Permit


Richard Knowles was present to address the board on behalf of the application. He explained that the First Baptist Church would like a new digital sign to replace the current sign. The new sign would be taller and rotated 90 degrees. Town Engineer Scott Allen explained what the village code states along with the overlay district. He explained that any sign in the prior village has to be approved by the Planning Board. Mr. Knowles answered questions from the board stating that the new sign will not be flashing and will change about once a week with a timer to shut it off at night. He also mentioned there will be no advertising done on the sign and that it will be for Church purposes only. Concerns were brought up about the size of the sign and the DOT’s interest in a sign on their highway.




A motion to approve the 03-05-18 minutes was made by Suzanne Airy, seconded by Kevin Rooney.  All in favor; minutes approved.





A motion to adjourn the meeting was made by Mark McEwen, seconded by Kevin Rooney.  All in favor; meeting adjourned at 8:00 p.m.



Respectfully submitted,




Brandi Schutt

Clerk to the Board
