Demolition of two-story side porch, new deck at lower level, replace wood siding with vinyl siding - work completed
Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for existing vinyl siding which is out-of-character with the historic district and must be replaced with wood or hardi-board-like siding and appropriate trim around windows installed no later than 31 August 2005. Siding to be painted. With regrets, the Commission notes the demolition of the two-story side porch, which would not have been approved, but does not request its reconstruction due to the safety concerns of the current use of the building for a school. No objection to existing one-story deck at lower level which is not visible from public thoroughfare. Note is made that permit application is pending final Zoning review. Any modifications to the approved design as a result of further review in the permit process must be submitted to the Commission for approval.
