NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
On December 16, 2010, the Zoning Administrator approved the following: a modification permit to allow replacement of an existing freestanding monument along San Nicholas Drive, which exceeds the maximum height and width permitted within Block 400 as specified per the NNCPC sign regulations. The proposed sign would be a maximum 10 feet wide by 6 feet high where the sign regulations allow a sign to a maximum 6 feet wide by 5 feet high and is depicted on Exhibit 2. The existing freestanding monument sign is located within the landscaped median strip and is 15 feet 6 inches from the property line adjacent to San Nicholas Drive, 66 feet from the center of San Nicholas Drive and approximately 330 feet from the center of Newport Center Drive. The proposed sign would provide improved visibility of the site address and tenants located within the commercial office building on the site for vehicles traveling along San Nicholas Drive and those turning from Newport Center Drive onto San Nicholas Drive. The property is located in the PC-56 (North Newport Center - Block 400) District.
