161667 01.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for a mothball certificate for 1134 W. Historic Mitchell Street, known as the Modjeska Theater, in the Mitchell Street Historic District for Modjeska Theater Project, LLC.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said this is the six-month review of the mothball certificate, which was issued May 17, 2017. There is no known work on fundraising or repairs and the boarded up windows do not match the cladding. John Kesselman - board member on the nonprofit board - they got out a tenant who wasn't doing the promised work. They had promised the city they would keep the building as a theatre. They did do the roof and scraped the asbestos caulk out of the windows and are doing odds and ends as they try to get a tenant/operator into the building. They have about 6 applicants and think they start work in the spring and then a 3-month construction process. The tenant put about $30,000 worth of improvements in the building and then went broke. The building could be open with $500,000 worth of work. They are constantly spending money on the building. They will show the RPF to the alderman and local BID. They want the operator to operate and rehabilitate the building. Tom Vavra - board member on the nonprofit board Ald. Jose Perez - there have been no written reports since the original COA was granted, Mr. Kesselman never responded to his request for a meeting and the building is a source of tension to the neighborhood. He has seen estimates of $1.5 to $2 million to get the building ready - it needs a lot of help. Ms. Peltz said it doesn't feel like there's a plan in place and they need a board that is involved in fundraising and willing to do all that work. She thinks it's very tough to do this with volunteers, rather than some paid staff. Hold for one month so the alderman and the board can meet.

181173 04.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for window replacement and general rehabilitation at 2803 E. Bradford Avenue, in the North Point North Historic District, for Lisa Groskopf-Gleason.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said the applicant wishes to replace the siding with appropriate materials, storm windows, doors and other work. The aluminum siding was installed in 1972 and the original clapboards are present, but in poor condition. They propose to install cedar siding and the east door, which is currently fiberglass, will be replaced and replicate the front door. The big issue is the replacement of the windows, which staff feels are repairable. Two windows qualify for replacement without question. The contractor provided staff with photos of all the windows in the house. The sleeping porch windows can be replaced. The PowerPoint details which specific windows to keep and which ones can be replaced. Meg Baninkiawicz - architect - the picture from the 80s, shown as part of the PowerPoint, isn't current. None of the current sashes match in the interior. She would like to replace all 3 across the first floor front so they are consistent. They would like to replace all of the windows. Ms. Clendenen-Acosta moved to hold until Mr. Askin returns. There were no objections.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said that staff is concerned with some of the exterior cladding and roofing materials. Staff proposes a temporary roof. The roof wood trusses remaining from the fire will be removed and replaced with steel. They would like to see what the temporary roof will look like over the shorter steeple. They would like the permanent roof to be slate. Ronald Yancey - 3735 N. 51st Blvd. - the temporary roof is scaffolding with a rubber membrane. Scott Randall - architect - will put a shorter roof on the steeple that collapsed. Basically in agreement with staff recommendations.
