Granite Quarry aldermen will hold hearing on sign changes

GRANITE QUARRY — Prior to its regular monthly meeting Tuesday, the Granite Quarry Board of Aldermen will hold a 6:45 p.m. public hearing on sign recommendations coming from the Planning Board.
Aldermen meet at Town Hall, 143 N. Salisbury Ave.
The Planning Board recommendations would modify the town’s unified development ordinance by spelling out requirements for blade signs, such as how far they can project toward the street and how they should be suspended.
Blade signs projecting out from a business will be limited in size to a maximum of 4 square feet. The height from the bottom of the sign will have to be at least 8 feet above ground, according to the Planning Board recommendations.
Signs will not be able to project more than 5 feet from the wall.
When they are suspended, the blade signs must hang securely under a canopy or awning, perpendicular to the building, and they will not be allowed to extend past the canopy or awning edge.
Blade signs will not be allowed to project into the street right of way. They may be illuminated, however. Only one blade sign will be allowed per business, if the proposals pass.
People will be given time to speak for or against the sign recommendations at the public hearing. Aldermen later will consider the recommendations during their regular September meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
In other agenda items, aldermen:
• Will consider appointment of a new Planning Board member.
• Will hear from Alderman Arin Wilhelm on a Granite Quarry mission statement.
• Will discuss a plat for road access to the Gildan plant off Heilig Road.
• Will hold a closed session to discuss a personnel matter.
• Will hear updates from the Parks, Events and Recreation Committee and the Revitalization Team.
