Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala went through the history of the site. The building was built in 1896 and has always functioned as a pharmacy. The building was remodeled in 1931, with additional flourishes added on. The storefront has very distinctive details. This building holds the corner as it has a lot of parking lots around it. Notre Dame Middle School wants to remove this building for signage and additional space for its school. The building meets the criteria of s. 320-21-3-e-5 and e-9, Milw. Code of Ordinances, per staff. Ms. Pieper Eiesenbrown moved, seconded by Ms. Keating Kahn, to open the public hearing. There were no objections. Patrick Landry - president of Notre Dame school of Milwaukee. The school is creating an all-boys school at this campus and is investing $5 million in this campus. Had the school known it was historic they would not have purchased this building; it has become a nuisance property for the school due to the homeless sleeping there and drug use at the site. He was told by the city that there wouldn't be an issue with demolition even if the property has national designation. John Sterr - 1315 S. 30th St. - he submitted the designation and this building is an integral part of the neighborhood for him. He thinks that removing this building will increase both speeding and crime in this area. Ms. Keating Kahn moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to close the public hearing. There were no objections. The motion to approve the designation is based on the criteria listed under e-5 and e-9.
