The sign committee is in charge of planning, constructing and installing a sign that meets requirements for i3 and the municipal codes.
Ok, the code is not that complicated, really. We'd do a Wall Sign, either attached to the wall above the garage, landlord permitting, or painted/vinyled onto the garage door. Both are in the same category of sign.
