190576 02.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the removal of existing signage and the installation of new individually mounted lit channel letters at 1030 N. Old World Third Street, in the Old World Third Street Historic District, for Fred Usinger Inc.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this is a revision of a previous proposal. The new proposed letters have been reduced to be the same size and font, but they are still internally and front-lit. Staff still prefers external lighting only and signage directed at the pedestrian level and consistent with the district. Staff would support back lighting. Skip Deback - Lembers Electric - will look identical to the existing signage during the day, but the sign will be internally lit during the night. He thinks the light output will be similar to halo lighting, which staff did support. He would like the application be granted as it is, with internally illuminated letters. Ramona Marenda - Lembers Electric also present. Mr. Jarosz would support the halo light, but not internally lit. Mr. Jarosz moved to deny with the understanding the staff can approve halo, back-lit lettering, seocnded by Peltz.

190577 03.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for a two-story rear addition at 1327 E. Brady Street, in the Brady Street Historic District, for Jeno Cataldo.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said that this is a revision to previous design proposals. Last Wednesday staff took pictures of work being done and demolition was done without appropriate permits. The proposed raised parapet hides mechanicals, which staff is fine with as long as an access door is provided. Staff recommends that more clarity and samples are needed, although the design is basically okay with staff. No COA will be issued until the condemnation order is lifted and all DNS violations are remedied. Staff recommends holding with the recommendations contained in the staff report. Ald. Nik Kovac - the goal is to get to a design that meets the guidelines. Jeno Cataldo - the contractor said he had a permit for the footing work and the job became more complex than first thought. They will be re-building the basement wall tomorrow and re-installing the flooring. He hired a new architect and he thinks the new proposed design is tasteful. The addition will be 1.5 stories in the back, although he would have preferred a 2-story addition. He is fine with installing a wood decorative door in back and wood windows are fine as well. The addition will be used for retail and an ADA-accessible ramp will be added on the side of the building instead of having disabled access in the rear. They are also adding bathrooms. Ms. Peltz thinks the front of the building is adorable, but thinks there should be more windows, but Mr. Askin noted how close the buildings are to each other. Mr. Askin is amenable to working with the applicant if the Commission approves the general concept. . Ms. Peltz would support granting this, amended by Ms. Keating Kahn, to approve the overall concept of the massing of the new addition and have details approved by staff, seconded by Ms. Clendenen-Acosta.

190692 08.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the construction of a new garage at 2245 N. Lake Drive, in the North Point South Historic District, for Christopher Kolenda and Nicole Kauss.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the garage will be at the rear of the property and will be visible from the street. Staff's only concern is the material selected, including SmartSide. Staff supports the design, but not the materials. The half-timbers are applied on top of the stucco, rather than being embedded in the stucco, which isn't true stucco. Staff recommends approval of the design with natural stucco. Nicole Kauss - owner Jerry Klose - Classic Builders - they will be using clear cedar instead of stucco. Staff supports the clear cedar with the existing design.

190694 09.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for general rehabilitation at 707 E. Brady Street, in the Brady Street Historic District, for Salvatore Sivilotti.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the project entails general rehab of the ground floor. There was conceptual approval a year ago of this project. There will be substantial improvement to the Brady Street elevation with new wood signing and windows and a bulkhead. The Van Buren elevation will no longer have the approved second story. Salvato Salvalati - building owner - in order to raise the second portion on the Van Buren side, substantial shoring would have to be done, as well as fire prevention costs. The biggest change is the second floor due to costs. The Commission suggested historic tax credits to help fund the costs. Mr. Jarosz moved to deny, seconded by Ms. Peltz.
