The followinq items were the major topics of discussion: Amendments to State Historic Districts Act Copies of the proposed amendment were distributed. At this point, they have been reviewed and accepted by the City Manager's Office and have been placed in the Legislative Package which the City will submit in January. No opposition has been detected to date but, should some surface, it may be necessary to locate an individual to sponser the changes. The Historic District Commission has been advised to "sit tight ". Hopefully, it will be passed as part of the total package for Little Rock. Calendar For 1981 It was pointed out that a 1981 calendar of meeting dates will be prepared for adoption at the next meeting. It was aqreed that we will leave the time and day at 4:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. Review of Historic District Package A final Commission review of the Guidelines, Ordinance and Bylaws was conducted to get the approval from the Commission on the location and wording of a few final inclusions to the draft. All proposals were accepted and staff was requested to meet with Mr. Powers to go over the final touches prior to publication. It was suggested that the final draft might be printed by the middle of next month. Historic District Report It was agreed that we should redraft the Historic District Report and include the above mentioned package, and the Quapaw Quarter Structure Survey. Plans are to organize a presentation team to deliver these materials, along with any other appropriate information to the Planning Commission and Board of Directors. Staff has been requested to contact appropriate participants and assist in develop- ing that effort. Administrative Procedures The procedure by which an applicant files a proposal and how it will be processed by the staff was discussed. Staff will research and provide information pertaining to the application form, the posted "on site" permit and a separate certificate of appropriateness to be presented to the applicant. Architectural Review Committee It was suggested by staff that the Historic District Commission appoint a subcommittee to review, discuss and form a recommendation on each certificate requiring a public hearing. It would be the responsibility of the staff to provide the appropriate information and to hold the subcommittee meetings, as well as provide the clerical assistance needed to package those recommendations for the Historic District Commission. Architectural Survey The Architectural Survey of the MacArthur Park and Governor's Mansion Areas of the Quapaw Quarter has been printed. Although they have not all been put together, one was distributed for review We will have them all completed by the next Commission meeting. There was discussion of an effort to update the survey, and it was agreed that the first order of business is to get the district approved. Then, we might look into a coordinated strategy with the State Capitol Zoning Commission to reconstitute the Architectural Jury and bring the document up-to-date. Scheduled Meeting The next Historic District Commission meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 2nd at 4:00 P.M. in the Second Floor Conference Room of City Hall. MD /se
