180822 02.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the construction of a garage at 2018 N. 1st Street, in the Brewers Hill Historic District, for Brian Holoubek & Natalie Streppone Holoubek.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the house is in the Queen Anne style and the applicant is proposing to construct a garage. The garage will be a 4-car garage at the rear of the lot. Staff has no objections to the design, but there are some issues with the siding, vinyl windows and the location of the structure based upon its size. The applicant, Brian Holoubeck, is fine with the hardy plank wood siding and he's okay with the wood windows. He will go to BOZA and request a dimensional variance. He's also fine with moving it a bit off the lot line. Grant, with conditions relating to materials and moving 1-2 feet from the side lot line.

180948 03.ResolutionSubstitute resolution affirming the Historic Preservation Commission's decision and denying an appeal relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for a block retaining wall and other work performed at 2229 N. Terrace Avenue in the North Point South Historic District for the Wisconsin Corporation of Seventh Day Adventists.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said that this application is a result of a citizen complaint. Staff has no objection to the concrete slab (although they'll need to add drainage which staff would like to see prior to its being done), a retaining wall and concrete steps were also added without approval. The applicant said that the planner has submitted a statement of hardship and the retaining wall, due to its height, didn't need a permit so he thought it would be fine. Staff would prefer stone or poured concrete for the retaining wall. Mr. Jarosz recommended having poured concrete or stone for the sidewalk to the tree and the remainder of the retaining wall could remain as it is. Mr. Askin recommended red Chinese sandstone and the applicant will work with staff. He is fine with re-doing that part. Ms. Keating Kahn moved to have the entire retaining wall done in the appropriate materials. Seconded by Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown. There were no objections.

180975 05.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for demolishing and reconstructing the Lake Park rustic wooden bridge at 3233 E. Kenwood Boulevard (Lake Park), in the North Point North Historic District for Milwaukee County and Lake Park Friends.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the proposal is to demolish and replace a bridge in the park - the bridge type is "rustic type". It's difficult to determine the original design of the bridge. Lake Park staff believes the bridge dates back to the 70s and the county says it is in a condemnable state and is a safety hazard. Staff would recommend approval of demolition as long as the criteria detailed in the report are followed. John Bayles - Lake Park Friends - if it is found out that the bridge can be rehabilitated then they would not need to tear it down. The bridge is currently a hazard. Approval is granted without financing available to replace the bridge and Ms. Keating Kahn would like a detailed cost estimate of what would be needed for a new bridge. One contractor was willing to work on this project and he wants to re-use as many existing bridge materials as possible. Members were concerned as this is Milwaukee County property while the Lake Park friends are the applicants and the materials are not historic. Ms. Keating Kahn said the county needs to be here, not Lake Park Friends. Ms. Peltz recommended keeping the bridge as a thorn in the county's sides. Ald. Bauman said that Lake Park Friends is not the owner and has no standing to make this application. Motion to hold.

181008 06.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for replacing some of the front doors at 2200 N. Terrace Avenue, in the North Point South Historic District, for Dan & Michelle Mahlik.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the proposal is to change out one set of fronet doors and possibly a second set as well. The door is a modern stained glass door. The intent is to return to the original planned French doors with clear glass. The neighboring unit supports the new doors and may install them as well once she sees these installed. The letter in the file from the adjacent owner notes that she will not be replacing her front door. Mr. Jarosz moved to accept the design of the door, but the adjacent owner must also replace her door and they both must be wood.

181022 08.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the construction of an addition and a fence at 3400 N. Lake Drive, in the North Lake Drive Estates Historic District, for William Bonifas.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the proposal is to add an addition and a fence. The addition was part of the original design, but it was never built and it was originally to be a detached garage, but now will be a bedroom wing. The fence appears to be 12 feet, but is shorter than Tim, so it is fine. The materials match the house and garage and staff recommends approval with conditions outlined in the report. The applicant finds the conditions acceptable. Grant, with conditions
