10/1/20180 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the house has been ill-treated with illegal work over a number of years. There are a number of vinyl windows and glass block windows in the basement. The rear door was also replaced and staff can't access it. The garage also needs to have some appropriate work done on it as well. There is also a deck in the rear that needs trim work, but it can stay. There are also two substantial depressions in the front yard due to water work that need to be filled in. A number of the windows have been recently replaced. Staff recommends approval with conditions. Roberthenry Davis, Sr. - property owner - he renovates and sells home - there were already vinyl windows when he bought the house. The glass block windows were for safety and there were squatters in the house and all the utilities were ripped out of the house. Approve, with the staff conditions.
