<br />RE: Planning Division comments for building permit file RLD 2014 0079)> Bartell's Flag Pole
<br />Thank you for submitting a building permit application for flag pole at 23028 100"' Avenue West (Bartell's) in the BN zone. I have
<br />reviewed the above building permit application for the Planning Division and it was found that the following information, corrections, or
<br />clarifications will need to be addressed before the Planning Division review can continue.
<br />1. Site Plan:
<br />a. Set acks — It appears that the proposed structure is set back at least 20' from the east "street" property line, as required by code.
<br />However, please dimension the distance from the proposed structure to the east properly line on the site plan so this can be
<br />b. Land - It appears that the structure is proposed in a parking lot landscaping island. Please confirm that no landscaping
<br />will be removed with this proposal.
<br />2. Height: The permit indicates both a 25' pole and a 28' pole. Please confirm that only 25' of the pole will be above ground,
<br />3. I'm trying to determine how to review this proposal — is it a sign permit? If so, ECDC Chapter 20.60.005 offers the following
<br />"Commercial sign " is a sign displayed for the purpose of identifying a commercial use, or advertising a service, product, business or
<br />venture that is offered for trade or sale.
<br />"Pole signs " are freestanding signs where the structural support for the sign is a pole(s). Pole signs may include community event
<br />banners where the banner is supported by at least two poles that are permanently attached to the ground ("pole -mounted community
<br />event banners').
<br />"Sign " is any structure, device or fixture that is visible from a public place, that incorporates graphics, symbols, or written copy for
<br />the purposes of conveying a particular message to public observers, including wall graphics or identification structures.
<br />"Sign area " is the maximum actual area of a sign that is visible from any singlepoint of observation from anypublic vantage point.
<br />Supporting structures which are part of a sign display shall be included in the calculation of the sign area.
<br />Unfortunately, pole signs are not permitted along the WestgaWSR-104 Corridor per ECDC Chapter 20.60.020.L. I'm wondering if
<br />the goal is to have a banner/flag similar to what PCC has installed across the street? If so, their sign package was reviewed and
<br />approved by the Architectural Design Board (ADB) and a condition of approval was made so that the banners do not display text or a
<br />commercial image, but rather coordinate with and enhance the site design. Would you like additional information on the ADB's
<br />design review process for a proposal that would include wall -mounted (not pole -mounted) banners? Please elaborate on the proposal.
<br />Please submit a written response to the above, along with any reviser! plans to your Permit Coordinator: Marie Harrison. If you have
<br />any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look for -ward to working with you on this project,
