ZBA REFERRALS:

 

Z-10-18 Lyons National Bank 359 Route 31 Area Variance Sections 135-190-C & E Size of sign Board reviewed this request for a replacement pylon/monument sign. New sign would be larger than previous sign & contain a digital element. Digital component will not flash or run. New sign would also eliminate need for temporary signs and banners.

 

Board recommended approval with consideration to the following conditions: (1) Digital message should remain constant for a period of at least 24 hours; (2) Digital message should be one consistent color; (3) No temporary banners on the property; and, (4) Size of proposed sign appears too large for the site and size of the building. Gross size of the proposed sign should be in line with the existing sign.

 

Z-09-18 Dunning 1073 Wilson Road Area Variance Section 235-61-D-1 Livestock (chickens) on lot less than 5 acres Board recommended denial of this variance.
