3/4/20190 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said the application was submitted by Ald. Bauman and Ald. Murphy as the property is currently for sale. A lot of development is occurring in this area. Ms. Hatala went through the history of the newspaper, which razed a number of structures in 1923/24 to construct its building at its current location. The designer was Frank D. Chase, Inc., out of the Chicago area, who specialized in industrial buildings and particularly in newspaper buildings. Not much has changed except the windows. Expansions were done after World War II due to advertising revenue increases. In 1962 a new addition was added to the east and south and no attempt was made to match the existing building. Ms. Hatala says this building meets the following historic criteria: s. 320-21(3) e-1, e-3, e-5 and e-9. Ms. Hatala also included the annex and the parking lot in her historic report. The parking lot was included so a building could not be constructed that would dwarf the building. Ms. Hatala would have to create the language to clarify what is included in the designation. The tax key encompasses the entire block except Major Goolsby. Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to open up the public hearing. No one wished to speak. Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to close the public hearing. Mr. Bauman moved, seconded by Ms. Peltz, for temporary designation based on e-1, e-3, e-5 and e-9. There were no objections.
