180168 11.ResolutionSubstitute resolution relating to the Permanent Historic Designation of the property at 2635 West Greenfield Avenue (also addressed at 1406 South Layton Boulevard) in the 8th Ald. District.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala went through the history of the site. The building was built in 1896 and has always functioned as a pharmacy. The building was remodeled in 1931, with additional flourishes added on. The storefront has very distinctive details. This building holds the corner as it has a lot of parking lots around it. Notre Dame Middle School wants to remove this building for signage and additional space for its school. The building meets the criteria of s. 320-21-3-e-5 and e-9, Milw. Code of Ordinances, per staff. Ms. Pieper Eiesenbrown moved, seconded by Ms. Keating Kahn, to open the public hearing. There were no objections. Patrick Landry - president of Notre Dame school of Milwaukee. The school is creating an all-boys school at this campus and is investing $5 million in this campus. Had the school known it was historic they would not have purchased this building; it has become a nuisance property for the school due to the homeless sleeping there and drug use at the site. He was told by the city that there wouldn't be an issue with demolition even if the property has national designation. John Sterr - 1315 S. 30th St. - he submitted the designation and this building is an integral part of the neighborhood for him. He thinks that removing this building will increase both speeding and crime in this area. Ms. Keating Kahn moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to close the public hearing. There were no objections. The motion to approve the designation is based on the criteria listed under e-5 and e-9.

180591 02.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the construction of a new service entrance door and small concrete walkway on the west elevation at 234 E. Vine Street in the Brewers Hill Historic District for Wolfgang and Whitney Schaefer of Uncle Wolfie’s Tavern.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the project has changed since it was originally submitted and the Commission has 2 options to consider. Option 1 is the back-up option, which staff does support and has a small sidewlk connecting to a door in the back. Option 2 involves a pathway to the back and can recommend this wth a few conditions detailed in the staff report. Staff recommends picket rail as both guard and handrail. Wolfgang Schaefer - 1805 N. Hubbard St. - Option 2 is preferred as it would be easier on the interior of the building. Whitney Schaefer - 1805 N. Hubbard St. - she is fine with painting the exterior door the same color as the brick. This is the easiest way to provide access to the basement, which is prep for the restaurant. Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown is also okay with the non-panel, painted door that matches. Ms. Keating Kahn moved for Option 2 with the staff conditions.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the accessibility ramp will go along one side and rear of the building. A wheelchair lift didn't work out ideally so they are requesting a ramp.

They have spent a lot of money on foundation repair as well as work on the interior. They serve immigrants, who are often disabled, so a ramp is a necessity. He has no concerns with staff's recommendations. Staff doesn't object to removing the window, as long as the applicant works with staff with the replacement. Staff recommends removing and storing of the stained glass windwow which is being converted to a door. Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown was okay with a steel door for fire purposes. Adopted with staff working on selecting the door and replacing the window.

   13. Certified Local Government Review of a National Register Nomination for the Coakley Brothers Warehouse at 3742 West Wisconsin Avenue in the 15th Aldermanic District.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said this report was prepared as a result of all the road work on Wisconsin Ave. The property has been in the Coakley family since construction until last year. It is being listed on the basis of architecture. Even though it was built as a warehouse, it was well-designed and a quality building which has had little change over the years. The building will still be retained as a warehouse facility. She supports the nomination. Ms. Keating Kahn moved, seconded by Ms. Peltz, for approval of the nomination. There were no objections.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said this nomination was a result of state funds to recognize civil rights sites. The bridge does not quite look the way it did during the marches of 1967 and 1968. Basically the road is being nominated, not the architecture of the bridge, based upon the actions of Father Groppi. Ms Keating Kahn moved, seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown, to approve the nomination. There were no objections.
