Addition above garage and swimming pool
Recommend against concept design for proposed addition on roof of existing garage and proposed swimming pool in rear yard. Addition would appear as a new accessory structure and would compromise the character of the existing party wall of residence to the south in its relationship to the open space of the rear yard, which is a historic condition of this Federal-era property and the typical urban fabric in the historic district. The proposed location of the swimming pool would have a negative impact on existing trees and compromises the possibility of mature landscape, which is characteristic of the historic district.
