7/7/20210 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION ADOPTED

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said all the houses are very similar with one developer and one architect and it was the same when the houses were all constructed. This is part of a larger project of 30 houses, 20 of which are not subject to HPC review. For Garden Homes, the color and material of the roof materials was regulated. Staff met with the architect and 3 products were agreed upon. Windows are the sticking point as most windows are non-original or are in hopeless repair so for most of the houses it is start from scratch. About half of the houses have gable peak windows, which are original and staff would like these windows retained rather than converting them to a vent. They are considering recommend aluminum-clad windows due to the project size and the cost of lumber. Each of 10 properties has the same "Overview" with differing staff reports. Most of the houses have aluminum siding, with some having vinyl and most of the stucco is in very bad shape. Lathe siding is the preferred look by staff with decorative detail as well as Hardy Plank, real wood clapboards and Smart Side. Any existing siding that can be repaired can be done. For those houses having Palladian-like curved moulding, staff would like to have those features restored. For garages, there are no original garages; most were built in the late 40s or early 50s. Every garage is a demolition candidate, per staff. Staff is reviewing the interiors; HPC can opine but its recommendations are not binding. Ms. Jacqueline Drayer said the houses were built between 1921 and 1923 and were one of the first publicly built homes and designed to help individuals build up equity. Once the homes were no longer part of a public cooperative new siding, additions and garage additions were installed. Major interior work will also be done. Ted Matkom - nonprofit developer. Work will be done using HOME funds, conventional debt and WHEDA tax credits. Grant, with conditions.
