I have <br />Thank you for submitting a building permit application for at <br />reviewed the above building permit application for the Planning Division and it was found that the following information, corrections, or <br />clarifications willneed to be addressed before the Planning Division review can continue. <br />1.Site Plan: <br />a.Setbacks– <br />It appears that the proposed structureis 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 />confirmed. <br />b.Landscaping– <br />It appears that the structureis proposed in a parking lot landscaping island. Please confirm that no landscaping <br />will be removed with this proposal. <br />2.Height: <br />The permit indicates both a25’pole and a 28’pole. Please confirm that only 25’of the pole will be above ground. <br />3.Design: <br />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 />definitions: <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 visiblefrom 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 single point of observation from any public 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 Westgate/SR-104 Corridorper ECDC Chapter 20.60.020.L. I’m wondering if <br />the goal is to have a banner/flag similar towhat PCC has installedacross 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 revised plans to your Permit Coordinator <br />: <br />Marie Harrison. If you have <br />any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you on this project. <br />Sincerely, <br />Gina Janicek::Associate Planner <br />City of Edmonds Development Services Department <br />th <br />121 5Avenue North, Edmonds WA 98020 <br />425.771.0220 x 1778 | <br />cc:BLD 2014 0079 <br />th <br />Development Services Department –Planning Division | 121 5Avenue North, Edmonds WA 98020 | 425.771.0220 <br />All code citations can be foundonlineat: <br />
