1/14/20190 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION HELD IN COMMITTEE

Minutes note: Ms. Hatala had given a presentation on the history of the park at the December meeting, a public hearing was held and the Urban Ecology Center requested a postponement of the actual vote to discuss if they felt comfortable with the designation. Ms. Hatala met with Urban Ecology staff and the nominator and the conclusion is they would like to work collectively to make the guidelines clearer. The consensus appears to be to work more on this between staff, the Center and the nominator. All parties are amenable to holding this.

12/3/20180 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION HELD IN COMMITTEE

Minutes note: Chair Bauman noted that this body makes a recommendation, which is referred to the Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee. Ms. Carlen Hatala said the HPC reviews parks and landscapes and has done for so many years. The application for historic designation was submitted by Michael Carriere. The park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The county is considering turning over a portion of the park to a nonprofit as part of a long-term lease. Ms. Hatala detailed the history of the park. There are some sculpture groups, a lake the Blatz Temple of Music (a bandshell and seating), a bathhouse and swimming pool, a senior center and a community building, which houses the Urban Ecology Center, a maintenance building and compound, sports courts, picnic shelters and small play areas. Currently a prairie installation was planted by the Urban Ecology Center. Staff recommends designation based upon e-1, e-5, e-6 and e-9. Ms. Pieper moved to open a public hearing, seconded by Ms. Peltz. There were no objections.
