This application had been tabled at the October 17 meeting. Slauter submitted an email to the Commission stating he had met with Rick Thompson from the NDCHF. Thompson thought it was a reasonable compromise to remove the Alvin Nelson sign and photo from the north and south ends of the patio. Nelson approached the Commission stating he had not pur- posely avoided submitting the signage requests to Zoning. Since the photos on the back wall and the NDCHF letter- ing on the stage are not intended to ad- vertise and can't be viewed from the street, he requested that they be al- lowed to remain. Bridger made the mo- tion to approve No. 17-36 with the removal of the north and souths signs and photos, and keeping the other sig- nage in place as originally presented. Second by Brannum.
