FRIENDS Preservation Committee takes no issue with the proposed signage. The material and typeface do not detract from the building’s character and are in-keeping with the style of the house. We appreciate the use of an adhesive to prevent perforating the limestone, and hope that the patching for the removed sign is indiscernible.
