3/4/20190 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the Dept. of Neighborhood Services issued a solar panel permit without referring it to HPC staff. The form included with the application does note that a COA must be obtained. Solar panels are allowed if they are not visible from the public right of way. Staff recommends approving the panels on the rear only. Michael O'Brien - owner, his son is Paul, who lives there full-time. His installer told him all the proper forms had been submitted and a roof-mounted unit would be appropriate. Elizabeth Hittman - Milwaukee Shines - the issue will be clearer in the future that the applicant has to receive a letter from HPC. She does not see ground-mount as being economically feasible. Becky - works for the installer Approval of the rear panels only and require removal of the front panels. Wis. Stats. 66.0401(1m)(c) of the state statute justifying the rationale. Nine in back are approvable and 5 are not approvable as an alternative system of comparable cost and efficiency and (b) does not signicantly decrease its efficiency.
