Decision Expected Tuesday on Target Signage
The Planning Board holds its regular meeting on Tuesday night in Town Hall, Room 9.
Wilmington's Planning Board agenda for Tuesday's meeting includes an expected decision on signage for the Target project that has been in the works for several years.
Board members are slated to meet at 7:30 p.m. inside Town Hall, Room 9, and among their new business is a decision on Sign Special Permit #12-2 for 210 Ballardvale Street, which is where the Target is set to be built.
Planning Director Carole Hamilton said earlier in the summer that Target representatives asked for a wall sign on the main façade of the building that extends above the roof line. In addition, the company seeks two secondary signs that face Ballardvale Street and I-93.
Wilmington bylaws allow just one secondary sign and a third sign in special circumstances at the Planning Board’s discretion. Board members also received a request for two free standing sings, one at the entrance and one on I-93.
The sign at the entrance is proposed at 30 feet tall where 15 feet is allowed, and Target seeks a 120-foot sign on the highway. Planning Board members previously told Target that the highway sign will not be approved while the Ballardvale sign proposal must be reduced.
Also up for discussion at the meeting on Tuesday are several proposed property amendments, requests for special permits and a request by T-Mobile to waive a site plan review at 625 Main Street.
