211891 02.ResolutionResolution relating to a retroactive Certificate of Appropriateness for staining brick at 2422 N Sherman Boulevard, in the Sherman Boulevard Historic District, for David Griffin.

Minutes note: Ms. Drayer said removing the stain would result in more damage to the building and experts were consulted who could not suggest any remedy. Ald. Bauman won't support which would just sanction painting the brick. David Griffin - owner - stain is a good product to use on brick as it retains the texture of the brick. Devin White - son of Mr. Griffin - putting paint on it will cause water to be retained, which will damage the brick. Mr. Askin thinks a single color won't be a benefit. Bauman moved to deny, seconded by Matt. Opposed: Patty, Rafael and Ann. Failed. Hold to the call of the Chair, by Ald. Bauman. Seconded by Mr. Jarosz. No objection. Held for another month.

211976 05.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the construction of an outbuilding in two phases at 3319 N. Lake Drive, in the North Lake Drive Estates Historic District, for Chris and Jennifer Abele.

Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said this house has two fronts - one facing Lake and one facing Marietta. From 1977 to 1995 there were also two additional freestanding houses on the lot. The owner is proposing eliminating a stockade fence and replace with a brick fence, a multi-car garage and a covered, in-ground pool. Phase 1 is two brick buildings, a wall and phase 2 is the glass covering for the pool house. The pool would have a shed roof. The two houses were present in 1984 which relates to the North Point North historic district guidelines relating to square footage. Staff does not support the roof for the pool. Where the proposed site for the houses was an ignored, wooded corner and no public views are obstructed, so siting is met for both phases. Even with its transparent nature, staff doesn't believe the pool structure is in compliance. The materials criteria is met for Phase 1. Staff believes the guidelines are met for Phase 1, but has concerns about the pool enclosure for Phase 2. Staff is concerned about how the drainage would be handled from the bathhouse as it's a lot of rainwater to handle with a lot of new, impermeable surface. Staff recommends approval of Phase 1 and holding Phase 2 for additional consideration. Nick Carnahan and Nia Lee - architects - the size of the buildings are being driven by the science of thermodynamics and also minimizing the amount it impacts the public view. Thomas Carlson - Atty. and Suzanne Hupy - neighbor - thinks the application materials are incomplete, particularly as relates to the pool. There is no plan to screen these items from Windemere Court and Ms. Hupy's property. They should also submit a lighting plan and screening plan, particularly along Windemere Court. Ald. Bauman moved to approve Phase 1 and hold Phase 2. Seconded by Ms. Peltz.
