Mr. Payton's comment is true, but moot. And, since you have no evidence that they (k)new what the size limit was, didn't like it... please try to refrain from muddying the water any more than it already is. And, shame on them, "museum folks," for trying to get away with such a sneaky trick. Don't they know that the spurious issue of a sign on a building has to be debated and fussed over until the cows come home? Maybe they ain't from around here.

If the museum folks went to the City BEFORE they built the sign, this would never have happened. I suspect they new what the size limit was, didn't like it, and did whatever they wanted anyway. Not much sympathy from GP.

I know there is a simple solution.After all as you travel into the "City",one would hardly notice the Crary sign after you see that "HUGE" welcome to the "City" sign on the left ,that was installed in the park on 7th st.,or the various banners ,that are overhead and the full width of the roadway just prior to the NOT so big Crary sign.We know that special exceptions would not be given just because it is the city's sign or the banners flop in the wind,don't we?
