6/22/09: FINAL DRAWINGS: The applicant has provided revised drawings for the July 13th hearing. The revised proposal includes text reading 'Oregon' in the center of the sign, with a new lighting animation that includes chasing incandescent bulbs spelling out the word. The lower plaque on the sign would be widened, provided with a green background and gold neon text reading 'Old Town - Portland'. The proposal also now includes changing the east- and west-facing painted signs on an elevated water tank on the roof. The existing painted tank signs are 152 square feet each. Both proposed signs include a single gold neon 'O' six feet six inches tall, applied to the east- and west-facing walls of the water tank. The 'O' signs are constructed of gold-painted aluminum pan channel letters, similar to those on the main sign.
