You are right about the code issue, the IBC (building codes) dictates all that, but all cities have ordinances and zoning codes that must be adhered
to also. You can apply for a variance but for something like this I doubt it.
I have been an architect for 15 years I've seen historical committees shoot down multi-million dollar projects for trash bin locations, signage,
lighting, just about anything they can complain about! That is why they are known as the hysterical department!
Local ordinances deal with everything from placement, size, facade, materials & color, etc.
Just wanted to answer fast didn't think it would matter.
