Description: Enclosure of arcade and new storefronts - Permit

RECOMMENDATION: Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for enclosure of arcade with proposed storefront which is inappropriate and incompatible with the character of the original historic facade retained at the second floor level, which is an element contributing to the Historic District.
