Absent: Doug Wehrle, Joe Sperber and Liaison Greg Schmidt
Meeting convened at 7:40 pm
The VEB had three items on the agenda:
The first of these were revised site plans for Umami Café. The proposal to move the screened refuse containers to the rear of the parking lot provided no visual concerns though the Board considered questionable the choice of a refuse site so proximate to adjacent residential property.
The second item on the agenda was sign replacement application for the cleaners located at the Van Wyck Shopping Center. There was concerned expressed by the owner of the property as to the condition of the sign facing western portion of the parking lot. The business owner observed that the sign is old and deteriorating and is suggesting its replacement with one very similar and slightly smaller. The name Pircio will no longer be on that face. The VEB has no objection to the applicant’s request.
Finally the board reviewed the signs content summary for Silver Lake Park that Sandra Hardy has cogently outlined. Some questions remain and require clarification from the appropriate Village agencies or entities. The Board requests a final meeting with all the key Village departments so that content issues may be finally resolved prior to commencing the signage design.
Meeting concluded at 8:40 pm.
