181641 01.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the addition of a solarium at 2879 N Grant Boulevard, in the Grant Boulevard Historic District, for Valerie and Roy Duncan.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the request is to add a solarium on the second floor above the bump-out. The drawings are now complete and staff feels this is generally acceptable. The sliding doors, per the architect, need to be included as part of the plan. Roy Duncan - the roof had been leaking. The Commissioners had no issue with the sliding door.

181789 02.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for replacing an ATM at 1039 W. Historic Mitchell Street, in the Mitchell Street Historic District, for Thomas J. Hart & Mitchell Street State Bank.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the owner is proposing to replace the current ATM with a larger ATM that is accessible to persons with disabilities. This location would require demolition of the building's stone and trim. Mr. Askin had 2-3 other possibile locations that would be more amenable to the history of the building. Staff recommends denial and, at least, a better design of the ATM. Thomas Hart - They are required to make it ADA-compliant in order to replace it. They want the machine in a high-traffic area for security reasons. The machine has been the target for successful fraud and was shut down over Labor Day due to this. Greg Schumacher - architect. No matter where it is put, unless in the same place, it will alter the facade. He is willing to remove and retain the stone so it can be replaced if the ATM is no longer needed. Ald. Perez is also uncomfortable moving the ATM to a less access (less secure) area. This is the first he's heard of cutting and retaining the stone. He would support with the caveat of salvaging and storing the existing stonework. That proposed corner is the safest location, even safer than a locked lobby for an ATM. If the plan is approved, Mr. Askin would like a better design for this location. Ms. Keating Kahn moved to hold until the next meeting and applicant works with Mr. Askin to create a better design. Ms. Peltz seconded. Opposed by Ald. Bauman.

181839 03.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for a dormer addition and changes to windows and doors at 217 W. Reservoir Street, in the Brewers Hill Historic District, for Jamison Klinkner.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this a proposal to add windows, slider doors on the rear of the addition The east elevation is generally approvable as long as there is more space between the windows and they are wood. The Commision has never approved slider doors. The proposed addition violates a couple of guidelines in the district. Staff recommends denial of this addition. Jamison Klinkner - homeowner - he provided photos of 7 homes in the neighborhood with shed-style dormers. He did talk to Carlen a few years ago about a shed-style dormer. He can live without the slider doors and is changing them to out-push French doors. His architect is the former owner of the house. Ald. Bauman does not support this as it fundamentally changes the character of the house. The owner had checked out other possibilities with an architect, but that didn't work out for kids or parents on separate floors. Staff recommends going off the back for an addition.

190041 08.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for alterations to a previously approved storefront design at 814 - 816 W. Historic Mitchell Street in the Mitchell Historic District for Hector Salinas.

Minutes note: This item was taken up first on the agenda due to a translator being present. The applicant had obtained a COA, but did not follow it in construction. The recess doorway and windows differ radically from what was granted by the Commission. Staff recommends denial and recommends the entry be recessed and the woodwork over the storefront and apartment entry as shown by the COA. Mr. Salinas said he wanted the door recessed, but the city wants another four feet level from the door for the handicapped. He also didn't want to cut up a big beam across the front of the building. Nathael Martinez - with the city's commercial corridor team, they reimburse once work is done up to code and he told the owner he needs to get HPC approval or make the modifications. Denied as the owner did not follow the plans approved by the Commission.

190045 09.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for constructing a conical metal canopy and associated landscape alterations at 1709 - 1715 N. Arlington Place in in the Brady Street Historic District for Hi Hat Real Estate, LLC.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said that a patio canopy is proposed, which does not conform to Brady Street guidelines. The material is not compatible with the district nor is the shape of the cone and it is highly visible on Terrace. The material is agriculture in nature, which is nowhere else in the district and there is only one other conical structure in the district, which is on the main building. Staff recommends denial. Leslie Montamuro - owner of Hi Hat - she bought the grain bin top. This could be taken down every fall; be up for three months. Dan Beyer - architect - he thinks this will be fun and unique. When the owner combined the parcel with her property, that brought this specific parcel into the historic area. This parcel of land did not contribute significantly in 1990 at the time of designation (it was a parking lot). Ms. Keating Kahn finds it funky and fun. This would be right on the property line. It is visible along Brady St. Staff did not realize that the drawing is not accurate in terms of what it looks like. Held so that more information could be provided.
