Minutes note: Ms. Hatala provided the history of the building which is contained in the historic desingation study report. Ms. Foley only lived in the building 2-3 years, but she held on to the property as a saloon/boarding house, which was one of the few ways a widow could earn money at this time. The building was not damaged in the Third Ward fire of 1892, although numerous surrounding properties were. There is a chronology of the buildings owners in the report. For approximately 20 years in the 1970s and 1980s, it became a gay bar and then was acquired by Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) as a student union. It was sold by MIAD and it is anticipated that it will be torn down and used for student housing. An additional entry was added on the first floor and orginal windows have been closed. There was also a garage at one time of which there are remnants which remain. There was a fire at this building in 2013. Staff recommends historic designation under ss. e-1, e-5 and e-9. Ald. Bauman moved, seconded by Mr. Williams, to open the matter for public testimony. Nancy O'Keefe - Historic Third Ward Association - in support of this nomination and provided a complete statement, of which she read the last paragraph. The complete statement is in the file. Marit Gamberg - nominator and neighbor Owner not present. Approximately three other buildings survived the Third Ward Fire. Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Mr. Williams, to close the public hearing. Ald. Bauman moved for historic designation, seconded by Ms. Keating Kahan. No objections.
