CB8 Hearing: 03/21/12 (Disapproved)
LPC Hearing: 03/27/12 (No Action)

FRIENDS Testimony:

The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS finds it inappropriate to install a bracket sign on the second story when its purpose is to promote a retail space on the ground floor. Furthermore, SPACE.NK Apothecary has more than enough signage on their storefront and awning skirt. Thus, we ask the Commission to deny this application.
