201536 03.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for required repairs at 961 - 967 N 33rd Street, in the Concordia Historic District, for Robert B. Pyles.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this addresses 20 building code orders from the Dept. of Neighborhood Services (DNS); a known preservation consultant assisted with the application and it's pretty much complete and ready to go. One chief concern is the missing attic windows. The third floor windows need to match, but don't need to be operable. All windows will be from Lisbon and lumber from Bliffert. The typical masonry and stucco conditions and staff approval of any windows prior to being ordered. Staff recommends approval with standard conditions; timeline for completion deferred to DNS. Grant, with conditions.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said there is a U-shaped copper addition and those windows are original to the 1950s construction. There are no original 1920s windows in the building; they are all metal windows from the 1980s. The windows have failed and need to be replaced. On the Prospect Ave. frontage, staff makes no recommendation; on the Wells St. frontage, casements with four operable panes would be reasonable.

210254 022.ResolutionResolution amending the by-laws of the Historic Preservation Commission relating to the categories of work eligible for staff approval.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this creates a path for easy approval for solar panels if specific criteria are met. The hope is that people will take this route rather than wait 3-6 weeks for the next hearing. He basically took the language from Portland, Oregon. Facing away from the street and on garages no staff approval if the garage faces the street frontage. The policy is for the least-visible from the public way.

   23. Updates and announcements.

Minutes note: The Burnham Canal Railroad bridge is not before the HPC, but it's pretty much set in stone we're going to lose this bridge. We have until Friday to submit comments.
