Burger King Renovation site plan

Mr. Bartlett appeared before the Board this evening to discuss the renovations planned for the Burger King at 520 Genesee Street.  He stated the plan for the signage was one (logo) on the front of the building, one (logo) on the side, which he will be applying for a variance from the ZBA for.  The plan is to move the sign allowed on the back of the building to the side.  He is eliminating the lettering (flame broiled) on the canopy area over the side door.  He is planning to replace the pylon sign (free-standing) from the existing 6 ft. square logo sign to a 6 ft. round logo sign, and the reader board below this will be replaced with a 3 x 5 sign.  A total of 32 square feet is allowed, and these signs, even though smaller than what is currently located there, is still larger than 32 square feet.  He also discussed the planned lighting for the site.  The existing light poles will remain, but the lamp heads will be changed from sodium to LED lighting.  There are a total of six poles existing.  The lighting plan has been forwarded to Barton & Loguidice, Village engineers for their review and recommendation.  They have not responded yet to the requested review.  Mr. Bartlett stated that there will be no light spillage from the site with the new lighting and the lights will be shining down.  The shielding on the lights is adjustable.  He also commented that the landscaping will all be re-done, the existing greenhouse will be removed as will the current landscaped area at the front, along with the wrought iron fence and the tables that outside.  There are planned new chairs for outdoors.  The Board asked about the exhaust hoods outside.  Mr. Bartlett reported that the fans and hoods will all be replaced on the roof, as well as the roof.  Andy Jones commented that there seems to currently be a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust units.
