9/8/20140 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION  

Minutes note: Ms. Hatala said that this nomination was submitted by Ald. Bauman and is located in his district. The school was built in three sections and it is unknown who the architect was. This is a basic school with nice touches on it and it was built with the intention of accommodating an addition. Some building parts, such as the louvre ventilator, are still intact. In the 1880s the school had 200 children in the basement and was seriously overcrowded. In the 1890s an addition was built. Once all the additions were completed, the school had 28 classrooms. This is an example of a modern schoolhouse and is in a good state of preservation. Staff recommends historic designation as the building meets three criteria: e-1 -- cultural significance; e-5 -- distinguishing characteristics of an architectural type and e-9 location and established or familiar building. Ald. Bauman moved, seconded by Mr. Williams, to open a public hearing. There were no objections. Francis Schrodell -- 1139 N. 21st -- he supports the designation Robert Tanzilo - 6662 W. Locust St. -- he supports the designation Gregory E. Gregory - 1321 N. 21st St. - he supports the designation Ron Roberts - Dept. of Neighborhood Services Commercial Code Enforcement - the department supports the nomination, but is concerned about the water damage and falling bricks on the building and that the perimeter be secured. A roof and exterior facade inspection need to be done as soon as possible. The Milwaukee Preservation Alliance supports the designation as well, but Dawn McCarthy did not wish to speak. The public hearing was closed. Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown was excused for this item.
