The building wrap as shown in Exhibit B of the license agreement was proposed to cover a large portion of the exterior wall in addition to both banks of windows on the facility which would require the removal of the City's window graphic.

The timing of the request from InWindow Outdoor, LLC did not allow for this item to be placed on a City Council agenda in advance of the required installation date of January 19, 2015....
