191654 01.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for conceptual approval of an addition at 217 W. Reservoir Avenue that includes an attached garage, in the Brewers Hill Historic District, for Jamison and Suzanne Klinkner.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said that this applicant had a proposal that was denied last year and he is now here for conceptual approval. People on King Dr. park on his street all the time and it is hard for his family to find parking. Due to building standards, there is no way possible to build a detached garage, so they are proposing an attached garage. There are 3 proposed options: A through C. Staff does somewhat support an attached garage due to their parking situation. Staff prefers option B, after much consideration as that option has living space over it, rather than an open deck. Dave Koscielniak -architect Jamison Klinkner - homeowner - he did get BOZA approval. He would prefer two options so he can discuss costs with his contractor. He doesn't really have a strong preference. He can live with option B. Motion is to proceed with the further design development of Option B and support Option A, with a parking pad.

191661 02.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for fa├žade alterations at 723 - 725 W Historic Mitchell Street, in the Mitchell Street Historic District, for Shane McAdams.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said the panels are metal and have been on the facade for many years; the intent is to return it to the 1920s, or at least the best guess as to what it looked like. The owner hopes it is more or less intact below the metal panels. Mitchell Street has consistently lacking in historic photos. The proposal is to go back to the 1946 design, which is the only art modern building by George Zagel left. Staff is asking which design to pursue - the 1920s or 1946? The owner is here today asking for permission to remove the metal panels. For the Built Rite building, staff recommends going back to the 1940s design and for the other building, he would like to see larger windows than proposed. Tom Stakowiak - architect - he wants to remove the panels and re-evaluate at that time. The owner wants to have art studios on the upper level. Motion is to remove the metal panels.

   4. Certified Local Government Review of the National Register nomination for the Sheridan Apartments Building at 2435 West Wisconsin Avenue in the 4th Aldermanic District.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said there is a very heavy use of terra cotta and the decoration decreases toward the rear as it's less visible to the public. The designer is the one who designed the Ambassador Hotel. The original light fixtures did not survive, but the ornate interior plaster did. Many of the interior features of the apartments still remain in the bathrooms and kitchens. Ms. Pieper Eisenbrown moved, seconded by Ald. Bauman, to support the National Register nomination. There were no objections.
