The Director of Engineering shall serve as the Superintendent's designee in matters related to the installation of marquee signs on Tucson Unified School District property.
No marquee sign shall be installed on District property without first being submitted for review and approval by the Director of Engineering.
Marquee signs shall be designed to comply with the applicable city or county sign and building codes for the site for which the sign is to be installed. The Director of Engineering shall be deemed to be the Building Official in all matters related to code compliance and variances.
Marquee signs shall be installed in strict compliance with approved submittals. Marquee signs donated shall not be approved for installation unless donation covers all necessary work such as supports, footings and electrical service when necessary.
All marquee signs submitted for approval shall be reviewed for appropriate design including size, style, color, shape and other physical characteristics.
In the case of donated signs, an appropriately sized donor's identification, name or logo, shall be allowed.
Tucson Unified School District shall hold all rights of ownership to marquee signs upon completion of installation and acceptance.
Donors of a marquee sign shall be responsible for maintaining the sign for a period of one year following installation and acceptance by Tucson Unified School District.
Following the donor's one year maintenance period, Tucson Unified School District shall be responsible for maintenance and upkeep.
The donor or other concerned individuals and groups may elect to provide maintenance service beyond the initial one year period upon the review and concurrence of Tucson Unified School District.
The Tucson Unified School District Maintenance Department shall inspect marquee signs to determine the needs relative to repair and maintenance. If inspections find that the marquee sign requires excessive maintenance to keep the sign in a safe and acceptable condition, they may modify, revise or remove the sign. Any change on a donated sign shall be reviewed with the donating party as a courtesy to the donor. Tucson Unified School District shall not be obligated after the one year period, without funding from the donor, to maintain or replace the donor's identification or logo or to replace the entire sign if removed.
