The Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors voted 5 to 0 to approve the Brandermill roundabout sign with required modifications at the November 28 supervisors meeting.
“This is an example of a community coming together to work with the county, the planning commission and adjacent communities,” said Clover Hill Supervisor Art Warren. “I have no qualms whatsoever about approving this sign.” Warren thanked Planning Department Director Kirk Turner, as well as all members of the planning commission for their approval of the project.
Although Matoaca Supervisor Steve Elswick questioned whether Brandermill might be receiving “preferential treatment,” he voted in favor of the approval.
As part of the redesign of the sign to meet county requirements, the tagline “A Waterfront Community” will be removed and the sign will be refaced with directional arrows and wording for Clover Hill High School and Swift Creek Middle School will be added. The work is to be completed within six months, and the BCA is to be responsible for maintaining the sign in compliance with the approval.
Acting Community Manager Al Raimo, BCA Directors Joan O’Hanley and Frances Hillman, Community Character Committee Chair Dianne Cardea, and Brooks Gray Sign Company President Brian Kelmar, designer and manufacturer of the roundabout sign, attended the meeting.
