All proposed exterior signs in a historic district are subject to approval by the Historic District Commission and the provisions of the sign ordinance of the City of Kalamazoo. Furthermore, to ensure that the scale, shape and type of signs are consistent with the character of the historic district or site, the following sign standards shall govern:
Freestanding signs should be two-sided to inform people in cars and on foot. Signs may not be internally lit, but may be illuminated by spotlights
Any sign that exists on the effective date of this policy which is nonconforming and does not comply with all of the provisions hereof, shall not be changed, altered or rebuilt in any manner described as follows, without prior review and written approval of the HDC. These signs shall not be changed to another type of sign, which is not in compliance with the policy or have any changes made in the words or symbols used or message displayed on the sign, unless the sign is designed for periodic change of message. Nor shall they be structurally altered so as to prolong the life of the sign or so to change the shape, size, type or design of the sign.
All new awning applications must be reviewed by the full commission.
New coverings for existing – previously approved – awnings may be administratively approved by the coordinator if the colors, content, placement of printing and materials are appropriate.
