Project Review

1. Case No. 09.02 165 Washington Street Civic Center Parking Garage (Public Hearing) The subject of the hearing will be an application by Joseph DiBattista, requesting a waiver of DRC Regulations prohibiting internally illuminated signs. The proposed LED signs are to be installed on the Washington Street and Adrian Hall Way elevations.

Interesting… One has to wonder what this sign will be saying, how big it is etc. But I do love me some big flashy signs. Though, I’d rather see an LED sign on the Fountain Street side to compliment the Hilton LED sign, but I’ll have to wait and see what they have planned.

I’m just happy to see someone wanting to do something with that facade.
