The Design Review Board voted April 14 to grant a sign variance and a fence permit to businesses.

The board unanimously approved an application for Pointe at Canyon Ridge Apartments, 8350 Roswell Road, to put a sign in the public right of way. It annulled the required 10-foot minimum sign setback.

It voted 5-1 to allow the Atlanta Center for Foot and Ankle Surgery to expand its Dumpster enclosure to six feet. The enclosure will be made out of concrete blocks and stucco and will have metal gates. Board member Marlise Landeck voted against the motion.

The City Council will have to approve the board’s decisions before they go into effect.
