The Germantown Design Review Commission has rejected the latest proposal from Apple for lighting the company’s corporate logo at the Saddle Creek store location.
, Apple Senior Vice President Ron Johnson said he wasn’t sure when the store would open. “We obviously can’t open the store until we have approval (for the sign),” Johnson said.
The Design Review Commission has reportedly allowed the company to place an apple logo on the sign and has expanded the size of the icon beyond the dimensions normally allowed. The latest dispute is with the lighting of the sign.
“The city and Apple disagree on whether the company’s proposal for fluorescent lights along the edge that shine through the logo constitutes an internally illuminated sign, prohibited under Germantown’s rules,” according to the article.
