Planning Board Minutes June 15th- CVS Storey Avenue

a) Tropic Star Signage Commitment

Director Port said signage for access to open space donated to the City by Tropic Star was to be approved by Planning Office. Jerry Mullins, who went directly to Tropic Star with his proposal for a substantial $10,000 sign, was concerned that the gas station opened prior to installation of open space signage and was upset the developer would not fund his signage proposal. Chairman McCarthy said the board did not expect a $10,000 kiosk. Members said a simple sign was acceptable. Chairman McCarthy said Tropic Star had been cooperative and worked hard to meet the board’s requests. The stone wall’s front area would be landscaped, irrigated, include a couple of maple trees, and have no signage.
