Representatives of Market St. and AARJU Realty, LLC came to the planning board to discuss an orphaned decorative signpost that formerly supported a sign for the Millhouse Panda restaurant outside 19 W. Market Street near the corner of Garden Street. The lineage of the post is unclear, but it exists in the village right-of-way.
The owners of the incoming restaurant, called Market St., would like to display their sign on the post but require a variance from the village Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) to so. After some discussion, the Rhinebeck planning board sent a positive recommendation with the stipulation that the ownership and responsibility for the post be resolved. The vote was 3-1 with one abstention.
