DISCUSSION/ACTION

 

4.    Approval of Riverwalk Marketing Sign Panels

 

Donna Steinebach addressed the Board regarding the sign panel design. Mayor Green asked about the cost of the sign panels. Ms. Steinebach advised that they are $1,400 for the two panels. Mr. Talluto asked why they are here to approve the design if it is already in process. Mr. Steinebach explained that the design for the panels has not been done yet. The design presented to the Board is a sample. The CRA Board can make changes if so desired. Mr. Talluto asked if the picture says what they want it to say. Mayor Green explained that it is not wide open but flexible; it shows the amount of property. Mayor Green asked Ms. Steinebach what they can pull up on the website under Riverwalk. Ms. Steinebach advised that they will be able to pull up everything relating to Riverwalk once the website is up to date. The design for the panels was based on consistency with the RFP advertisements, but the CRA Board can make changes.

Councilman Ford is happy with what is presented for the panels.

Councilman Burnette also likes the design but thinks the uses should be rearranged. He believes “retail, office” should be lower on the list.

Councilman Pohlmann is fine with the design presented.

Vice Mayor Kennedy said people are noticing the sign and he is ok with the design presented as well.

Member Talluto said he is ok with the design.

 

Motion to approve the sign panel design made by Vice Chairman Kennedy and Seconded by Member Pohlmann. Motion carried unanimously by roll call vote.
