Starbucks Sign Vote Postponed; Lack of Quorum For ZBA Tuesday

Smiley face

A lack of a quorum postponed the Sulphur Springs Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals meeting that would have considered a variance to the city sign ordinance for property located at 1320 South Broadway. This is the second recent ZBA meeting postponed due to a lack of members attending, according to sources. The board of adjustments and appeals had one member resign last month and two members were unable to attend the meeting set for Tuesday, December 15. The board must have four favorable votes to approve a variance to ordinances. City Manager Marc Maxwell said the city council will appoint additional members and alternates soon.

The request was being made to increase the height and size of a proposed sign. The sign ordinance states that the sign at this location can only be 24 feet tall. The postponed request seeks an 85 feet sign. The hardship noted is a lack of visibility from the interstate. Starbucks could come to Sulphur Springs if the variance is approved.

N3 Realty in Southlake has requested the variance. The location of the sign and Starbucks would be the lot next to Chili’s on South Broadway. City Staff recommends approval for the variance on two conditions. The first condition is that the site be platted. It is not a currently approved lot. The second condition is that a building permit be issued prior to permitting the sign.

plan01Nine letters were sent to property owners within 200 feet of the property and no responses either in favor of or in opposition to have been received.
