8/2/20210 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION HELD IN COMMITTEE

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the lighthouse is now being braced. The tower is made of wood and stucco. The applicant has not submitted anything besides photos for demolition; there are a number of criteria for demolition. None of the criteria for demolition have been met. Staff recommends denial. Ald. Kovac wants to keep this and he has not seen a plan to restore it nor testimony from independent engineers/contractors. Steve Tilton - owner - he has had 2 experts look at it as well as Mr. Jarosz. No documentation has been provided that this is beyond repair. Mr. Jarosz did get up close and touched it. Mr. Askin has not been invited onto the property. Mr. Jarosz is afraid it will fall over any moment. A laser scan of it was done last week. The stucco was repaired over the years. The applicant wants to remove and replace it. He does not know how this can be repaired, other than saving the top and make sure the foundation is good. He supports having this reconstructed. Mr. Askin said the applicant has had months to submit a replacement plan and nothing has been submitted. Held so the applicant can submit a plan for replacement and schedule for Aug. 12th.
