NEW BUSINESS

a.) 7278 Nolensville Road, request for Certificate of Appropriateness for a hanging sign

There was some discussion with the applicant, Judy Swindell of Marie’s New and Old Treasures, regarding the number of signs that are currently on the building, and the size and colors of the sign she is requesting. Mr. Laird stated that the allowable square footage of signs would probably be exceeded if the 2 current signs remained and the new one was added. Ms. Swindell stated she would complete a sign permit application and meet with Mr. Laird about the sign size allowance, and, if necessary, she could remove the signs on the north and south sides of the building. It was determined that the new sign requested will be 10 feet by 2 feet with a white background and black lettering. Commissioner Josh Hughes made a motion to approve the applicant’s request for a Certificate of Appropriateness to install a hanging sign. Commissioner Crigger seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.
