Subject: Historic Preservation proposal
Dear Alderman Witkowski,
Based on HPC's and citizens' feedback at the March 27th meeting, it makes sense that you make the suggested changes to your proposal, amending it so that all that transpired can avoid being repeated at further public hearings.
Milwaukee benefits greatly from historic preservation, and the Historic Preservation Commission is an excellent safeguard for related procedures by the Common Council. Applicants and developers can't simply be given a bypass to HPC procedures by having the Common Council decide on any CoA that has been on file for more than 90 days. That the Marriott received a Common Council action before HPC had completed its negotiations with them, did not speak well or serve the City well.
HPC clarified at the March 27th meeting that most of the 12 points covered aren't needed, and that only a few of their policies and guidelines would benefit by updating, streamlining and clarification. Eliminate what isn't needed, and meet with them to achieve updated clarification on the remainder. Put in place safeguards against demolition by neglect, and maintain the City's power to control developments that impact Milwaukee's Historic Preservation.
