Pet Smart at 6370 North Point Parkway in the North Point Market Center will be adding additional wall signage for a secondary entrance that leads to a separate section of the building dedicated to veterinary services.

The Alpharetta City Council recently approved the sign ordinance exception for the 26,339-square-foot commercial building to help facilitate foot traffic to the appropriate building entrance.

Pet Smart proposed applying unused sign area from the main entrance to the secondary veterinary services entrance. The existing main entrance sign is 142.6 square feet and the proposed second entrance sign is 13.4 square feet for a total of 156 square feet.

The city’s planning commission determined the proposal would not significantly impact surrounding properties that are developed for similar commercial uses. Another tenant in the shopping center, Target, was approved for a variance in 2018 for a second wall sign to indicate pharmaceutical services.
