DENNIS WILSON&ASSOCIATES T o w n P l a n n i n g a n d U r b a n D e s i g n MEMORAM)UM To: Planning and Zoning Commission Board of Aldermen Town of Westlake From: Dennis Wilson, AICP DATE: July 23, 1996 RE: Variance Request for A Sign for PrimeCo, Solana Background According to the Variance Application, the applicant is requesting permission to add a building sign on the office building located at 6 Campus Circle in Solana. The proposed sign is comprised of the word "PrimeCo". This proposed sign comprises 29.4 square feet, with letters which are 30 inches tall. This exceeds the area allowed in the sign ordinance of 24 square feet, by 5.4 square feet, or 22.5%, and the allowed letter height of 12 inches by 250%. The requested sign includes a short name, and therefore is proportionally taller, without the corresponding increase in sign area. The increase in sign area is similar to the CitiCorp sign which is 28 s.f. Recommendation It is recommended that the application be approved based on the fact that it is in character and in scale with other signs in Solana.
