A quorum was present - Mr. Carl Menyhart, Ms. Julie Wiedower, Ms. Jeanette Heinbockel and Mr. John Bush. City Attorney Peggy Johnson was present. Item No. 1 Owner: Harold King /Leonard Stallman, Agent Location: 411 East 6th Street Request: Install Vinyl Siding Mr. Harold King was present and explained his siding request to the Commission. He presented photos of the structure, which were accepted as exhibits 1 -12. Mr. King explained that the structure is used as an office building and was restored in 1980. He stated that he had to paint it every two years. Mr. King said that the proposed 4 inch lap vinyl siding matches the existing wood siding. He stated that there would be no change to the roof, only repair to existing fabric. The gutters will also be repaired or replaced. Mr. King also said that any rotted wood that won't hold nails will be replaced. oft Ms. Heinbockel stated that she has no problem with vinyl siding as long as there is no artificial siding on the north facade of the structure. Ms. Heinbockel also questioned the application of metal siding over the cornice and other details. Commissioner Bush commented that the curved bay on the west side is one of the most attractive details on the structure and that the bay is also very visible from the street. Commissioner Heinbockel made a motion to approve the application with the condition that the north facade, including one west panel in the porch area have no vinyl or metal siding; and that no siding be allowed on the bay on the west side of the structure; and that the wood lattice on the west and south sides be replaced with wood lattice; and that all details of original features are to remain unaltered. Commissioner Wiedower seconded. The vote was taken. Motion carried. All ayes. There being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
