Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the north wall EIFS was installed in 2017 without a COA and you can see the horizontal lines all the way down. If not granted, they would request continuation of the mothball status. EIFS is never a good idea for a retrofit; the underlying brick was not in perfect condition and cream city brick is a soft brick. It is anticipated it will have water problems and it is visually incongruent. It was attached to a water barrier, but the adhesive needs to be very carefully applied. Staff recommends denial, except for granting the mothball request. This is one of the oldest building in the cities. Pam Weisser - Grand Avenue Club Associate Director - they have $400,000 in expenses relating to the south wall. The EIFS work would be done after the work on the south wall is completed. Robert Four - Spread A lot Company - they had moisture penetration - he watched it applied and it was well-applied. Would require removal of the EIFS, stucco and brick and then re-brick the wall. The feeling was the EIFS would mock the stucco as closely as possible. Stucco was applied directly to the brick. The stucco was falling off in chunks so EIFS was applied. Deny COA and grant mothball for the north facade.
