S&H Case No.: 01-20                                                      Zone: S&H

1705 Genesee Street                                                       Cert. of Appropriateness

Applicant: John Clapper

Owner:  Bestdent, LLC

 

In accordance with the requirements contained in Section 2-29-294 of the Zoning Ordinance of the City of Utica, the applicant is seeking approval of a Certificate of Appropriateness in order to install additional signage at the above referenced property.

 

The applicant received approval in 2019 for a 2’ x 12’ white painted wood sign with black painted lettering.  The sign reads “John Paolo’s Xtreme Beauty Institute.”  It has four channel posts and is parallel to Genesee Street.

 

The applicant is proposing to install two additional sign boards.  One sign will be 2’ x 12’ and will read “Goldwell Products Artistry (315) 736-2002.”  The second proposed sign will be 6’ x 3’ which will read WWW.JohnPaolo.edu.”

 

The Scenic and Historic Preservation Commission met on January 27, 2020 and there wasn’t any representation on behalf of the applicant present at the meeting.  The Commission had discussion regarding the number of proposed signs and the style of the signage. 

 

The Commission voted to table the application and requested that the applicant submit a plan to consolidate all of the signs into one free-standing sign as permitted by the Zoning Ordinance of the City of Utica.  The property is located within a Community Commercial zoning district.  The maximum size for a free-standing sign in a CC zoning district is 90sf (both sides included).  The applicant is proposing a 4’ x 12’ (48 sf) single sided sign.  No information has been provided on the style of the posts or supports for the sign.

 

At the July meeting of the Commission, they voted to table the application and requested a design to include:

 

  1. Wood decorative posts for each end of the sign;
  2. Wood frame around the sign; and
  3. Landscaping around the base of the sign.
