220382 05.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for installing a new roof of different material type at 3357 N. Sherman Boulevard, in the Sherman Boulevard Historic District, for Andre Ash.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said the applicant has a red tile roof on the house built in the late 1930s. The garage also has a tile roof. The applicant has looked into asphalt shingles. There are plastic tiles, concrete tiles and clay tiles. There are also metal tiles that are formed to look like Spanish tiles. If the tiles are outside of the cost of his budget, staff would recommend asphalt shingles as a last resort. Andre Ash - 3357 N. Sherman Blvd. - a rough estimate for clay tile is $160,000. The roof is in total disrepair with falling tiles and pieces of tiles. An asphalt roof would cost $20,000. Patrick Fay - roofing contractor - 95% of the other roofs are asphalt. A similar roof would be $50,000, which is 1/3 of the house's value. Mr. Jarosz would like to see some bids prior to making a decision. Mr. Jarosz would like to schedule this next month to get additional bids.

220454 08.ResolutionResolution relating to a Certificate of Appropriateness for the addition of a deck and stairs at 1307 E. Brady Street, in the Brady Street Historic District, for Jeno Cataldo.

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said there were three distinct buildings in 1888. In 2017, the Commission approved a second story deck with a wall facing Brady Street. It is close to, but not touching the adjacent building. Last year the Dorsia restaurant added a small deck at the back of the building. The current proposal is to add another second story deck on the Dorsia restaurant with a wall facing Brady Street and a recessed interior with stairs. This will require cutting into part of Dorsia's wall. Staff has concerns as it now looks like one long string of a building with uncharacteristic features of Brady Street. Construction has already begun. Staff recommends denial and saw the prior work done as an experiment that did not turn out well. Abby Gonzales - architect - what the owner did was not what the architect had submitted (and hadn't even submitted any plans).
