Replace retaining wall and fence on public space, site work
The Commission regrets that the retaining wall and wood fence were installed on public space prior to review or permit. No objection to issuance of public space permit for demolition and reconstruction of brick retaining wall no taller than 42 inches with the relocation of the salvaged historic iron fence and for repair of planter wall, or to issuance of permit for proposed alterations to the raised brick terrace and for new stone terrace on a sand and gravel base per supplemental drawings received 20 January 2016. The Commission questions the replacement of the Maple street tree with a smaller Sweetgum tree and recommends the existing tree be retained. Note: Any subsequent modifications to the approved design, including those made during DCRA technical review, must be resubmitted to the Commission for approval prior to the issuance of a permit.
