Planning Commission Narrowly Approves new Sign for Bay Street – “The Porch”

On January 24, 2013, the Planning Commission considered the approval of a permit to allow an additional sign at Bay Street, “The Porch”.. The purpose of the sign is to better identify the eatery areas as a destination place. The approval of the sign met with some resistance. It just barely got the FOUR votes necessary for approval. the highlighted picture below shows a picture of the new sign.

There are some questions about the purview of the Commission’s authority. Is it up to the Commission to decide if the addition of the sign is a wise business decision.?  or is it to judge the appearance of the sign..?  ..
