6. Total height limit is 8 feet.
7. Illumination must comply with the full sign ordinance.
8. No electronic message displays are allowed.
9. The sign shall be placed so that the visibility will not be obstructed from any driveway curb cut, alley return, or driveway-alley combination.
10. Freestanding signs shall be of a pedestal or monument type. Construction materials shall be compatible with other structural forms on the development lot. Elevation drawings shall be submitted for staff review prior to issuance of a building permit, showing construction materials and detail.
