The new Starbucks at the former Burger King location on Garibaldi Way has applied for a variance to the district’s sign bylaw.
Christine Moore, a spokesperson for District of Squamish, said the district was still reviewing the application for the new Starbucks located at 1814 Garibaldi Way,
Starbucks is requesting variances to the sign bylaw which would allow for additional signage on their building that is not currently permitted.
Starbucks wants to include an additional fascia sign on the south face of the building, which is not permitted by the bylaw.
The bylaw permits only one fascia sign per road frontage.
However, there is no road frontage on the south side of the property for which Starbucks wants the sign.
Starbucks had initially also asked for a variance for its drive-thru signage. However, they later revised the signage to meet the requirements of the bylaw, and didn’t need the variance.
They do, however, need the variance for the additional fascia sign on the south face of the building.
“This application is still under review, and the variance has not yet been granted,” said Moore.
The district is also reviewing a variance application for front setback on a proposed car wash on property adjacent to the 7-Eleven on Garibaldi Way.
