6:13 PM Dorothy Washburne arrived.
6:15 PM Jean Dellert arrived.
Jeff made a suggestion that now that they have the new parcel based zoning map, he would like to have the flood plain and perennial stream information transferred onto it. He went over the map that he had designed showing the flood plain and perennial streams.
Jeff also suggested that they add more street names to the zoning map to make it easier to identify areas.
The members discussed the maps and noted changes on the map. (see map for details).
Committee members discussed signs in the various districts. It was recommended that signs in the proposed Business/Professional District not exceed 6 S.F. They also indicated that they would not like to see any additional internally lit signs other than those already in existence.
Dorothy Washburne indicated that she would like to see the Central Business District extended out Cobbossee Avenue on both sides. Rich suggested that if it were extended out too far it would kill off the downtown area and the City has spent a lot of time and effort to develop the downtown.
