Forks Planning Commission Meeting
Spartan Stadium Sign Code Variance
5:15 pm, 20 Apr 2022
City Council Chambers
500 East Division Street
Notice is hereby given that the City’s Planning Commission will consider a sign variance request from the Quillayute Valley School District regarding placement of the typical welcoming mascot, team spirit, and stadium identification on the soon-to-be-constructed Spartan Stadium. Proposed signage would be lit during stadium usage and the total square-footage of all proposed stadium related signage would be approximately 800–900 square feet. QVSD is replacing the stadium to address safety hazards. They are requesting this variance as the issues involved are not clearly addressed in the city’s sign code. The only other business of the Planning Commission will be updates on events of the past four months and setting tentative meeting dates for the remainder of the year. Questions should be directed to Rod Fleck, City Attorney/Planner at email@example.com
Notice is hereby provided that on 10 Sep 2021, the City Planner did approve the large lot (lots greater than five acres) division of the property owned by DSDJ, LLC a partnership of Lynn Soloman, Dave Dilley, Mike Dilley, and Rick Jacoby. The applicants voluntarily submitted this project to the City for review with regard to access, critical areas, and utilities. Further, when originally submitted, additional information was request of the applicant which was provided in late July regarding a binding landowner agreement to address violations of the DNR issued Forest Practices Permit and the current Critical areas Code in relationship to the then in place Clallam County Shoreline Management Plan. Finally, the applicant provided the required SEPA checklist in early September. Final approval shall be granted upon expiration of the time noted below for the appeals of this decision.
