SUMMARY:

 

In July of 2016, City Council referred to the Planning Board for review and recommendation a proposed ordinance for a Historic Building Demolition Review.  Between August and November of 2016, the Planning Board discussed at regular meetings as well as workshops a proposed amendment to the Land Development  Code (LDC), which would allow for Historic Building Demolition Review.

 

Currently the LDC only affords an application and review process for the issuance of demolition permits for those areas within a historic district or other similarly designated area requiring such review.  The desire is to provide a review process citywide regarding the issuance of demolition permits for historic structures as defined within the LDC.

 

In October of 2018, City Council referred to the Planning Board a proposed Historic Preservation Commission.  In response, at its February 12, 2019 Planning Board Meeting, the Board brought forth a proposed amendment to the LDC allowing for a Historic Building Demolition Review process.

 

With the assistance of Inspections, Planning Staff, Legal and Council staff, the proposed amendment to Section 12-12-5 of the LDC, Historic Building Demolition Review was brought forth for Council consideration.  At its September 12, 2019 Council meeting, Council approved the amendment on first reading.

 

During discussion of this item, a desire was expressed to create a Master List of Historic Sites that would assist inspections and planning during the review process.  In order for this list to be created in a timely fashion, this Resolution of Council’s desire that such a list be created is brought for Council consideration.
