Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said Ms. McCarthy applied for temporary designation to start the process for permanent designation, which held off on the requested demolition permit. The house was in existance in 1872 and most of the structures during that time have been demolished and replaced. The house was in existance as early as 1865, and possibly earlier. There were a number of families who lived in the house over the years, one for a period of 33 years. Stucco cladding was added in 1910 was a result of remodeling. Theodore Schutz, the architect, was the building's longest owner. Ms. Hatala listed properties that had been remodeled, but were still designated as historic. Dr. Garner, who owned the house at one time, was a prominent physician, who had trainng on the east coast. Theodore Schutz altered the house beginning in 1892. The foundation is all original to the house. A lot of the building features aren't original, but are reversible on the porch. In 11904, the roof was raised and it was converted to a duplex in 1918. Mr. Schutz worked as an independent architect and designed a number of buildings still standing on Brady Street. Ms. Hatala recommends approval of the historic designation based on the building meeting e-1, e-3, e-6 and e-9 sections of the code. Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Ald. Bauman to open the matter for a public hearing. There were no objections. Opposed: Peter Feigin - did not wish to speak John Vogel - historian who feels that preservation and progress must be balanced. He disagrees that this house meets the criteria for designation. Pat Connaughton - plan to deconstruct and put in a few units. They will be doing deconstruction, not demolition. Atty. Bruce Block - he is not here representing Mr. Connaught. His practice is commercial real estate and he is very involved with historic preservation and has been for over 20 years. He does not think this building meets the standards of the ordinance. Supporters: Gail Fitch - 1733 N. Cambridge Ave. - has written historic articles over a number of years. She wondered if the house could be moved. Dawn McCarthy - nominator - 2589 N. Lake Dr. - she agrees with staff that the house meets the four criteria outlined by Ms. Hatala. Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to close the public hearing. There were no objections. Mr. Jarosz said that he doesn't support nomination as the building doesn't rise up to the nomination. The other three commissioners concurred.
