Planning Commission Update - August 14, 2013

Service Station Sign Ordinance

Planning Commission recommended approval to the City Council for an amendment to the City’s Sign Ordinance for Service Stations.  The amendment will allow Service Stations to have one monument sign that displays electronic fuel prices.  

The Commission also placed the following stipulations:
  • LED prices cannot be changed more than once every 12 hours
  • The prices are only allowed to be adjusted downward in price (just kidding)

Second Hand Store - 925 W. Foothill Blvd.

The Planning Commission considered a request, to allow a secondhand store with a donation center called “Giving Hands,” to locate into the commercial building on the northeast corner of Foothill Boulevard and Lincoln Place.  Discussion took place regarding the pros and cons of such a use, especially with residential homes nearby.  The Planning Commission continued this request to  their next meeting on September 11th  to allow time to investigate some of the concerns expressed at the meeting.
