I have re-reviewed the above building permit application for the Planning Division and it was found <br />that the following information, corrections, or clarifications will need to be addressed before the Planning <br />Division review can continue. <br />1.Design: <br />I’m trying to determine how to review this proposal –is it a sign permit?If so, ECDC Chapter <br />20.60.005 offers the following definitions: <br />“Commercial sign” is a sign displayed for the purpose of identifying a commercial use, or advertising a service, <br />product, business or 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 <br />community event banners where the banner is supported by at least two poles that are permanently attached to the <br />ground (“pole-mounted community event banners”). <br />“Sign” is any structure, device or fixture that is visible from a public place, that incorporates graphics, symbols, or <br />written copy for the purposes of conveying a particular message to public observers, including wall graphics or <br />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 <br />vantage point. Supporting structures which are part of a sign display shall be included in the calculation of the sign <br />area. <br />Unfortunately, pole signs are not permitted along the Westgate/SR-104 Corridor per ECDC Chapter <br />20.60.020.L. I’m wondering if the goal is to have a banner/flag similar towhat PCC has installedacross the <br />street? If so, their sign package was reviewed and approved by the Architectural Design Board (ADB) and a <br />condition of approval was made so that the banners do not display text or a commercial image, but rather <br />coordinate with and enhance the site design.Would you like additional information on the ADB’s design <br />review process for a proposal that would include wall-mounted (not pole-mounted) banners? Please elaborate <br />on the proposal. <br />Please submit a written response to the above, along with any revised plans to your Permit Coordinator. If you <br />have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working withyou on this project. <br />Sincerely, <br />Gina Janicek:: <br />Associate Planner <br />City of Edmonds Development Services Department <br />th <br />121 5Avenue North, Edmonds WA 98020 <br />425.771.0220 x 1778 | gina.janicek@edmondswa.gov <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: http://www.mrsc.org/mc/edmonds/Edmondsnt.html. <br />
