5637 Mayfield Road
Review proposed sign plan for Key Bank.
 
Mr. Major Harrison III, of Brilliant Electric Sign Company Ltd., 4811 Van Epps Road, Cleveland OH 44131, presented a proposed sign plan for the new Key Bank on Mayfield and Brainard Roads.
 
Mr. Harrison explained that the face of the proposed ground level sign will be twenty-eight (28) square feet and be internally illuminated, and the overall square footage of the proposed sign is forty-two (42) square feet, with a masonry base. He stated that the masonry base will match the brick on the building. He explained that the uniqueness of this sign is due to duo film which is a type of translucent film that shows the copy black during the day and white at night, when illuminated. He further explained that the key logo will not have the duo film, and will always be red.
 
Mr. Harrison presented the proposed building signage which faces Brainard Road, and stated it is a stacked set with a square footage of fifty-nine point zero nine (59.09) square feet, which includes the negative space. He explained that the lettering is individual channeled letters illuminated by LED lighting, which also incorporates the duo film. He further stated that the returns of the letters will be white, and the raceway will be painted to match the building brick as close as possible. He then presented channel letters which will be facing Mayfield Road; this proposed building sign has the same characteristics as the proposed building sign facing Brainard Road, but will be forty-eight point forty-four (48.44) square feet.
 
In answer to Mr. Milanich's question regarding the positioning of the key logo on the proposed building signage, Mr. Harrison stated that it depends on the expanse of the building face.
 
Mr. Harrison stated that nine (9), individual, non-illuminated awnings will be incorporated in the design, and be red and not encased.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, Mr. Harrison stated that the finish on the awnings is waterproof and somewhat textured.
 
Mr. Harrison then presented proposed directional and informational signs.
 
Mr. Milanich stated that he would like to see the horizontal white line in each of the three signs for the ATM be located at the same point in the sign.
 
Councilman Frey concurred, stating he feels the proposed signs would read easier if the horizontal line was placed in the middle, for all three signs.
 
In answer to Mr. Harrison's question regarding banners, Mr. Kunz explained that banners are prohibited. He further stated that all proposed signage except for the banners is within code.
 
It was moved by Mr. DeBaltzo, seconded by Mayor Cicero, that the proposed sign plan for Key Bank be approved as submitted, pending the white horizontal line in the ATM directional signs be in the center of each of the signs.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
5000 Clubside Road
Review proposed plans for an addition and alterations to Hawken Lower School.
 
Mr. James Duber, Studio Techne Architects, 12210 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, 44106, presented proposed plans for an addition and alterations to Hawken Lower School.
 
Mr. Kunz explained that this has been an ongoing project for many years, and is in its third phase. He further stated that the site plan has been reviewed and approved by the Planning Commission.
 
Mr. Duber gave a brief history of the work completed thus far. He stated that the majority of the proposed alterations will be at the main entry and there will be an addition to the second grade classroom. He then stated that roofs will be added to give this portion of the building a three dimensional character.
 
In answer to Mr. Milanich's question, Mr. Duber stated that a lot of thought and discussion went into the corner area; the grade change, the non-symmetrical building and in keeping with the Georgian Architecture, decided that the proper design for the corner area is what is presented.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, Mr. Duber stated that all new materials will match existing.
 
It was moved by Mayor Cicero, seconded by Mr. DeBaltzo that the proposed plans for an addition and alterations to Hawken Lower School be approved as submitted, pending all new materials match existing.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
5301 Mayfield Road
Review proposed new skylights and reroof over Lyndhurst Fire Department.
 
Mayor Cicero explained that the City received an energy grant from NOPEC.
 
Mr. Kunz stated that part of that grant will be used for the cost of reroofing over the fire department and adding three (3) skylights with a southern exposure to allow natural light and heat into the apparatus room. There are three (3) shingled roofs; one over the fire department, one over the police department and one over city hall. He explained that twenty-four (24) years ago, a complete roof tear off was done and it was re-shingled. Mr. Kunz recommends a complete tear off of the fire department and city hall roofs. He then presented the two (2) color choices for the solar reflective shingles.
 
In answer to Mr. Milanich's question, Mr. Kunz stated that presently, there is one layer of shingles. He further stated that the existing shingles are not lifting or curling, and he attributes that to one layer of shingles. He further stated the proposed skylights will more than likely go in between the expanse of the heavy timber.
 
Mr. Kunz further explained that the cost is covered by the grant, and is at state contracting pricing and no bidding is required. He then stated that the grant covers the roofing, including tear off over the fire department but not city hall.
 
Mr. Milanich concurred with Mr. Kunz, stating that a tear off of the existing roof is in order. He further stated that he prefers the shingle color of Sunset Shake, which is a bit lighter than the other choice. Mr. DeBaltzo concurred.
 
It was moved by Mayor Cicero, seconded by Mr. DeBaltzo that the meeting be adjourned.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried, meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
