A hand-painted sign on the back of Main St. Pizza Company on East Main Street, Batavia, has the local zoning board's blessing, according to shop owner Vic Marchese.
He said that the zoning board approved a variance for the sign on Tuesday, even though the county planning board had recommended disapproval.
The sign was painted by local muralist Vinny DelPlato earlier this summer. It was only after Delplato completed the work did Marchese learn the painting, considered a sign, not art work, needed city approval.
That's Great! It's much better than looking at just old bricks.
I thought there was only a one sign limit per business. I can remember something about Thomas and Dwyer putting up a sign on the Jackson Street side of there store, and it wasn't allowed. If that is true, why is this different?
Andy Worhol's paintings of soup cans and such are considered art. Why not a pizza box?
Really????come on now....no wonder ppl are leavin this anal town....
I try to learn something new every day.....thanks Howard.
