Wheelhouse Signage Variance Application
Wheelhouse Detroit is applying for a signage variance from the City of Hamtramck Zoning Board of Appeals. Our proposed sign is not allowable by the city's signage ordinance, which only allows for a business name and phone number or address.
Working with Detroit Sign Painters, we think our proposed sign is elegant and informative. Because many other businesses in Hamtramck currently have non-conforming signs that include iconography, descriptions of what the business does and more, we believe that our business requires a sign with more than what is currently allowed by right in the existing statute to be competitive in the market. Furthermore, the front of our facade is hidden by trees (which are lovely but don't make for easy sign reading), so the southern facade of the building is the only possibility for a large descriptive sign.
The sign will be 10'x6' on the south facade (Florian-facing).
We would like to present signatures from local residents, workers and business owners that support this requested signage variance at the July 5 hearing as supporting documentation.
PLEASE ONLY SIGN THIS IF YOU LIVE, WORK OR OWN A BUSINESS IN HAMTRAMCK.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Wheelhouse owner Kelli Kavanaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support!
