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 />Please understand that any time a commercial (or multi-family) site proposes any changes to the site, <br />design review is required. A flag pole is indeed a portion of anaccessory structure, but the design of itssign <br />or flag is subject to design review pursuant to ECDC Chapter 20.11. <br />ECDC Chapter 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. <br />Is thegoal is to have a banner/flag similar towhat PCC has installedacross the street? If so, their sign <br />package was reviewed and approved by the Architectural Design Board (ADB) and a condition of approval <br />was made so that the banners do not display text or a commercial image, but rather coordinate with and <br />enhance the site design.Also, the banner wound not be able to be in motion (via the wind) so thisform of <br />mounting wouldn’t work. <br />Here is some additionalinformation on the ADB’s design review process for a proposal that would include <br />wall-mounted (not pole-mounted) banner. Please let me know if you would like to present your proposal to <br />the ADBfor additional signage (which would otherwise not be allowed).The fee for the ADB sign review <br />process is$820($795 +$25)and all of the following criteria need to be met: <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 /> <br />
