PORT ORCHARD The future size of the signs on Sportsmans Warehouse and Levitz Furniture is now in Hearing Examiner Stephen K. Causseaux Jr.s hands.
The signage disputes of the two new businesses in Silverdale were discussed at a hearing Thursday. County ordinances state that building signs must not exceed 90 square feet per face limitation or exceed 200 square feet of total signage. Sportsmans Warehouse is disputing that ordinance and is asking for an allowed total signage area of 682 square feet including six auxiliary signs displaying hunting, fishing, camping, reloading, outerwear and footwear. If the six additional signs are not included they are still asking for a total sign area of 356 square feet. Levitz is requesting a total signage area of 264 square feet.
Requested signage includes one sign for each store on the front of the building, one sign each on the western side of Levitz (the Costco side) and one
