The City of South Padre Island Developmental Standards and Review Task Force approved a plan to set signage standards at the shopping plaza located at 410 Padre Blvd. The plan was submitted to the Task Force by Jaime Alardin on behalf of the property owner, Var-Isla Plaza, L.L.C. of Brownsville.
According to Alardin, the purpose of the plan is to promote a compatible style or theme between all signs within the multi-tenant development. Alardin stated, “With this plan we want to let all the tenants know what we are looking for and what we want to have on those canopies.”
The plan calls for all signs in the plaza to be up to 64-square-feet in size, to be made of channel letters, and to be placed on the sign canopy structure of the building. It also calls for all signs to receive architectural approval on background and color, and once approved, to obtain a sign permit from the City of South Padre Island prior to construction.
