(a) Report from City Manager NOV6-00-646 WVI
(b) Applicant/Appellant: Tim Murray, Re/Max All Executives, Inc., on behalf of Caruso's Restaurant
This is an appeal of a decision of the Sign Code Advisory and Appeals Board to deny a request to grant a variance to allow an existing billboard at the northeast corner of Park Avenue and Drexel Road to remain in its current location. The requested variance was from the General Requirements and Limitations provisions pertaining to detached signs, Billboards (Tucson Code Section 3-59(A)). Specifically, the applicant requested a variance to (1) exceed the maximum area allowed by 208 square feet, (2) reduce the required separation distance by 505 feet, (3) exceed the minimum setback from a residential boundary line by 145 feet and (4) exceed the required angle to the street by 17 degrees. The proposed variance would allow the existing 10' x 28' billboard to remain in its present location.
On August 16, 2000 the Board denied the requested variance. The applicant is now appealing to the Mayor and Council the Board's decision, requesting that the Board's decision be reversed and that a variance be granted. The requested variance would allow the existing billboard to remain.
The City Manager recommends that the Mayor and Council consider the merits of the appeal and vote to uphold the decision of the Board.
