Ms. Hunscher explained that she reviewed the initial approval for the strip center including resolution and site plan and Board Professional’s memos.  While there is sufficient parking for the Dunkin Donuts under the new code (the initial site plan required a parking variance), the signage per the Ordinance must be in conformance with the theme that was approved at the time of approval.  The theme approved by the DRC was black or bronze lettering.  Subcommittee agreed that the new Dunkin Donuts would have to comply.
