HDC_01 13 1983M I N U T E S HISTORIC DISTRICT COMMISSION JANUARY 13, 1983 4:00 P.M. MEMBERS PRESENT: MR. JOHN JARRARD, CHAIRMAN MS. BETH FOTI MR. GEORGE WORTHEN MEMBERS ABSENT: MR. LONNIE POWERS MR. SAM STRAUSS, JR. STAFF PRESENT: MR. MIKE DOOLEY The meeting was called to order by the Chairman at 4:00 P.M. and finding a Quorum, the Commission moved to accept the Minutes of the previous meeting as recorded. After determining that notification requirements were in compliance, Mr. Jarrard announced the first item as: location: 624 Rock Street owner: Rock Street Partnership, Inc. applicant: Mr. William H. Kennedy, III Mr. Tom Johnson who is the architect on the project presented the request noting that the applicant desires to repair and restore the front porch at 624 Rock Street to a safe and sound condition. The materials used will be similar to existing materials and will include wood columns, wood joists, and a wood framework around the top part of the porch. A substantive change will occur, however, in that the concrete slab forming the roof of the porch will be replaced by wood, which will in turn be either waterproofed or covered with roofing or similar material necessary for waterproofing. This new material should not be visible from street level. The applicant further expects to correct existing settling of the south side of the porch by removing part of the brickwork enclosing the crawl space under the porch and, by use of shims, joists, cribbing or similar work, correcting the existing slope on the porch and eliminating further settling. This work, as stated above, would require the removal of brickwork, including �. that enclosing part of the current crawl space. This brickwork will be re- placed with other brick similar in form and substance to blend in with the existing facade. Mr. Johnson further stated that the estimated cost of the project would be approximately $4,000. Mr. George Worthen made a motion to approve the application which was seconded by Ms. Beth Foti. The Historic District Commission voted to approve a Certificate of Appropriateness as submitted by a vote of 3 for - 0 against with 2 absent (Mr. Lonnie Powers, Mr. Sam Strauss, Jr.). In other matters, the staff reminded the Commission that the required Code of Ethics Disclosure Forms needed to be completed by each member and forwarded to City Hall by January 31, 1983. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 4:25 P.M.
