ITEM H-1 TAPE 1, COUNT 370
P. H. 2001/ 187 -APPLICATION 01-I-76 and CASE NO. 1776
Applicant: GREYSTAR MID-ATLANTIC, LLC, by Audrey Huggins

COMMENTS: Proposal: To construct 5 industrial/ office/ warehouse
buildings totaling 598,000 square feet; AND seeking a VARIANCE from
the provisions of Section 98-77( 3) of the Deerfield Beach Land
Development Code in order to allow a non-residential use abutting a
residential zone to provide a lake-and-landscape buffer rather than a 6-
foot CBS wall. Location: A 39.9-acre parcel described as THE KRAFT
PLAT, located at 600 South Powerline Road.

Dennis Mele, Representative of the Applicant, stated that he is familiar with the quais-judicial
rules and waives the procedure. He said that the site plan is known as the Kraft
Nursery property on Powerline Road. The northern boundary of the property is West
Drive, western entrance to Century Village; eastern boundary is the western end of the
portion of Century Village. He said that this property has come before the Commission
for rezoning, plat and a concurrency agreement for traffic. The subject item is a site
plan, which they have worked extensively with the neighbors to address their concerns
to include a drainage problem on the Kraft property to the east of the site. And to correct
this problem, a drainage plan has been setup.
QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS -CONTINUED
In addition, Mr. Mele stated that they would obtain permits from the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD), as well as others. And enter into an agreement to
verify that all would be complied with as the property is developed. Further, Mr. Mele
stated that according to Section 98-17 (4) Stormwater Management, the
aforementioned are required.

Andy Maurodis, City Attorney, recommended that if it is the Commission's desire to
approve the request that Section 98-17 (4) be adhered to, therefore, approved with
condition, as amended.

In response to Commissioner Trinchitella's question, Mr. Mele replied that there is
currently a wall a long the eastern boundary, and they would continue it northward along
the east edge of the lake and then to the north end of the lake towards Powerline Road.
And the wall would be added to the site plan instead of the guardrail.

Commissioner Trinchitella stated that he met with the buildings in the area and agrees
with the plan to include those concerns being addressed as previously stated.

Mr. Maurodis recommended that the Commission vote be to amend the site plan, to
include the wall being constructed to Powerline Road. And that the condition of
approval, would be that the agreement is satisfactory with regards to the drainage and
executed prior to the issuance of any building permits.

Gerald Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management, stated that the
proposed plan does meet Code requirements and plant buffering; in addition, the
Community Appearance and the Planning and Zoning Boards has approved the
request.

ITEM H-2 TAPE 1, COUNT 599
P. H. 2001/ 188 -SIGN CASE NO. 579
Applicant: TARGET CORPORATION

QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS -CONTINUED
COMMENTS: Proposal: Seeking a VARIANCE from the provisions of
Section 102-8( c)( 2) of the Deerfield Beach Land Development Code in
order to allow a second building sign on a street frontage. Location: 1200
South Federal Highway

Ed Stacker, Counsel for Target, stated that Bob Skerlock, Target On-site
Representative, and Boyd Hippenstiel, Heath and Company, L. L. C, the sign company
are also in attendance. Mr. Stacker requested that Items H-2 through H-5 have
separate motions because they are all separate, but gave an overall of the signage
requested for all items combined.

Gerald Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management, stated that the Code
allows one free standing monument sign and one building sign for each street front.

Mr. Stacker provided photos that were taken on the west side of Federal Highway of the
Walgreens sign indicating that they are open 24 hours, advertising the liquor and
pharmacy stores and the Blockbuster Store signage to give a comparison of the Target
signage. He also provided photos of the Target signage from the south side, Southeast
10 th Street intersection, south towards Target, and directly across the street from the
store, showing the banner, that view is not clear due to some landscaping.

Continuing, Mr. Stacker distributed prints of the signage, Item H-2, the sign is a 2' -6" in
height. He requested the Commission's approval of a second sign, pharmacy, on the
western face of the building. He said the sign is 56 sq. ft. in total square footage and
would be located at the south entrance of the store. He said the previous store did not
have a pharmacy and from a marketing standpoint, this sign would identify such.

Further, Item H-3 is a monument sign, Page 2 of the prints of the sign. Mr. Stacker
said that the sign on the right was approved by the Community Appearance Board
(CAB) and would be installed on the south side of the building, at the truck entrance.
Also, the CAB recommended that they not paint the sign pedestal red, but same color of
building, which they adhered to. The monument sign on the left, conforms to the Code
if it was 20 feet from the right-of-way. However, last year when the site plan was
approved, a variance was approved granting the building to be located 8 1/ 5 feet closer
to Federal Highway. So, with the heavy landscaping along Federal Highway, and the
building being closer to the highway, he requested that the sign be allowed to be moved
closer to the entrance way as well.
Item H-4, the Banner Sign. Mr. Stacker stated that the next two variances are required
because signage is not permitted on the north side or front of the building because it
does not front on a street. Previously, when they appeared before the CAB the sign

QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS -CONTINUED
was centered on the entry, and the request was denied because there were residents
who did not approve of the signage facing their residences. So, it was approved with a
condition in that they place a banner located to the west. The sign was move further
west because Mrs. Gerbino indicated that she could see it from her residence. The
subject sign is important because it is the first sign that the traffic would see from the
south and the residents to the east should not be able to see it.

Finally, Item H-5, Mr. Stacker stated that this request is for an additional Target sign
with lettering being 3 ft rather than 4 ft. and would be located underneath the structure
parking. And is not visible from Federal Highway or from the east, but only when
entering into the parking garage to indicate the entrance to the store, which was
approved by the CAB as submitted.

Mr. Stacker further stated that Target has worked diligently with the residents; although
all of their concerns have not been satisfied, Target has demonstrated their commitment
to resolve the issues. By providing additional landscaping, shielding on lighting, tighten
the ramps to minimize the noise and in doing so, requested the Commission's approval
on the sign code. He also stated that the store will be opening within several days, and
approximately 125 to 150 of the new employees hired are all residents of the City of
Deerfield Beach. Therefore, they are committed to being good corporate citizens.

Randall Granbino, 901 SE 11 TH Street, stated that she and her husband appreciates
Target's cooperation regarding the north facing banner sign, which has been relocated
to the bottom of the badge and is no longer visible from her property. Nevertheless, she
thinks that the north facing banner sign is one sign to many and expressed opposition to
it. She said that the building is very large and being a neighborhood store, it would be
there a long time. Therefore, the decisions made today would impact generations of
Deerfield Beach residents, and urged the Commission to deny the north banner sign.

MOTION was made by Commissioner Trinchitella and Seconded by Commissioner
Clarke-Reed to close the public hearing. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed,
Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella and Vice Mayor Noland. NAYS: None.

Mr. Stacker stated that SE 13 th Court is a roadway that goes into the residential
neighborhood to the east, and it is their intentions to capture as much traffic traveling
south to avoid having to make a u-turn or enter into the residential neighborhood.
Therefore, he encouraged the Commission to approve all the variances.

In response to Vice Mayor Noland's question, Mr. Stacker stated that due to the
concerns of the residential neighbors, the banner sign was relocated three times.
Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked what sign has Mrs. Gribino expressed concerns
regarding.

QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS -CONTINUED
Mr. Stacker replied H-4, however, she cannot view that signage from her property.
Mr. Ferguson stated that the monument sign on SE 13 th Court, to the east facing the
residential, is blinded by landscape. So, there would not be any signage shining into
the residential area, as was recommended by the CAB

MOTION was made by Commissioner Trinchitella and Seconded by Commissioner
Gonot to approve Item H-2, P. H. 2001/ 188; Sign Case No. 579. Roll Call: YEAS:
Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella and Vice
Mayor Noland. NAYS: None.

Mayor Capellini did not vote on this item because he arrived late, due to him attending a
meeting at the City of Coral Spring.

ITEM H-3 TAPE 1, COUNT 1200
P. H. 2001/ 189 -SIGN CASE NO. 580
Applicant: TARGET CORPORATION

COMMENTS: Proposal: Seeking a VARIANCE from the provisions of
Section 102-9 of the Deerfield Beach Land Development Code in order to
allow a monument sign which will be 38 square feet in size and 10 feet tall
rather than 15 square feet in size and 5 feet tall. Location: 1200 South
Federal Highway

Commissioner Gonot stated that the sign print that was distributed is misleading
because it indicates a 10 ft monument sign and a 5 ft monument sign with graphic
showing the person standing next to the sign is approximately the same size, 4ft.

Boyd Hippenstiel, Heath Corporation, stated that the sign prints that were distributed to
the Commission were two separate drawings and when they were condensed into one
the shadow of the people were not changed. He said that the original signage request
was 8 ft. but was recommended by the Community Appearance Board to reduce it to 5
ft.

Commissioner Gonot expressed concern with the signage being placed in the crash
zone area because it is heavily traveled.
Mr. Stacker stated that the banner sign is an important sign and is positioned where the
residences can not view it. The monument sign can possibly be lessened by
approximately 5 ft. to be consistent with the variance that was granted with the building.
And stated that he does not object to it being made a part of the motion.

Marsha Yolman, Chair, Coral Manors Traffic Calming Committee, stated that the
Committee appeared before the Commission in the spring and requested that a traffic
survey be conducted and as approved, McMahon and Associates, Inc. proceeded with

workshops.

John DePalma, McMahon Associates, Inc., stated that they met with the Coral Manors
Traffic Calming Comititee in May, and proceeded with the traffic calming study. He
stated that beginning May through August they developed a systematic plan for the
Coral Manor neighborhood, which is boarded by Hillsboro Boulevard to the north,
Federal Highway to the east, SE 2 nd Avenue to west and SW 10 th Street to the South.

Continuing, Mr. DePalma said that there were several issues of major concerns in the
subject neighborhood which is not uncommon to communities facing traffic issues, such
as speeding, stop signs violations and cut through traffic. Therefore, they held a series
of meetings to include an educational process, to view traffic calming ideals and then a

submit a schedule to the Commission for it
