NEW BUSINESS:

TRACY PLAZA:

Tim Guyer asked about the monument sign at Tracy Plaza.  Mr. Glazier called and has a new tenant moving into Tracy Plaza and he doesn’t want any trouble about installing a sign.  The problem is the zoning ordinance states the monument sign cannot exceed 100 square feet.  Adding another sign will exceed that.  Steve Hickman stated that Solar Lounge is gone, he suggested taking their sign down and then there would be room for the new tenant’s sign.  The Plan Commission agreed with Steve and directed Tim to talk to Lee with any further questions pertaining to the 100 square foot monument sign.

 

BOARD OF ZONING:

Laura Hammons submitted a letter wishing to serve on the Board of Zoning Appeals.  Terry motioned to send favorable recommendation to the Town Council to appoint Laura to the BZA.  Jim seconded the motion.  Vote was 6 affirmative.  This is to be placed on the Town Council agenda.

 

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC:

No comments or questions.

 

Jim Lasiter motioned to adjourn the meeting.  Steve seconded the motion.  Vote was 6 affirmative.  Meeting adjourned at 7:22 p.m.
