Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the owner nominated her property. The building was constructed in 1883 by Mathias Lamers as a rental property. This is one of the finest buildings in the area and the storefront has been unchanged since 1901.

The shoe store operated until 1929 following the death of Mathias's son. Ms. Farrelll bought the building in 1971. This building meets e-1, e-5 and e-8 for permanent historic designation. Staff recommends the designation. Celine Farrell - 832A S. 5th St. - building owner Ald. Bauman moved, seconded by Mr. Jarosz, to open the public hearing.

221875 04.ResolutionSubstitute resolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for a phased project of deconstruction, storage, and reconstruction of the side pavilion of the Pabst Mansion, 2000 W. Wisconsin Avenue, an individually-designated historic property, for Captain Frederick Pabst Mansion, Inc.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the side pavilion is from the Columbian Exposition and was used briefly by the Pabst family, then it became a private chapel for the archbishop, then a gift shop. The pavilion was not meant to be exposed to the outdoors, so it has seriously deteriorated. There is no flashing on this building. It has suffered 120+ years of water damage, the floor is not sound and the plaster is decaying inside. The owners propose scanning it, then deconstructing and by 2031-2033 reconstruction as an open pavilion as close as possible to its original state, with 25% of original material. He does not feel that this building is "non contributing". He would ask members to re-do the local nomination once more it is reconstructed since it deserves more than the current 2-3 pages. There does not seem to be an alternative to the deconstruction plan; it needs to come down to be re-built. Staff recommends approval with 2 conditions, one being an annual progress report until complete and return for review prior to beginning reconstruction. As much historic items will be used as possible, with an estimated 25% being used. Mame McCulley - Pabst Mansion Board Chair - this is step 1; they will back this summer with another application to fix the envelope of the mansion itself. Jen Davel - Heritage Research Inc. - might be able to use historic tax credits if it's classified as a "restoration". Zachary Peterson - 1100 S. 5th St. - Milwaukee Preservation Alliance - in support Emma Rudd -- 1100 S. 5th St. - Executive Director of the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance - in support

   18. Discussion and possible vote on creation of a Certificate of Repose for work done by a prior owner without a Certificate of Appropriateness (Common Council file number 230005).

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this is a response to deal with new owners to deal with illegal work that was done by prior owners. Mr. Askin created the language, which essentially treats the illegal work as if it had been in place at the time of designation. If work is done, the work must be code-compliant; the owner is not permitted to replace in-kind. The criteria to meet the qualifications are detailed in the ordinance, all of which must be met. Members supported not having a time length designated in the code. Staff supported 3 years to match with the capital gains timeline. Ms. Peltz would also not support having any years tied to it. The time line was included to avoid collusive transactions. Members supporting changing the 10-year language to a 3-year term. Drafted by Chris Hillard. Ald. Bauman moved to change the 10-year term to 3 years. Seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown. Mr. Jarosz moved, seconded by Mr. Robinson, to approve as amended.
