HDC_04 05 2001City of Little Rock HISTORIC DISTRICT COMMISSION 5 APRIL 2001 MINUTES LITTLE ROCK HISTORIC DISTRICT COMMISSION (Included are the Minutes of the 25 April Continued Meeting) Commissioners Present: John Greer Howard H. Gordon Jean Ann Phillips Mark Zoeller Commissioners Absent: Wyatt Weems Staff Present: V. Anne Guthrie Debra Weldon The meeting of the Little Rock Historic District Commission (LRHDC) was called to order, and there was a quorum. The 1 February meeting's minutes were reviewed. (NOTE: Weldon stated that the fourth paragraph on the first page should read, "The purpose of the amendment is to require [instead of' allow'] a periodic review ..... " Weldon stated that the third sentence in the same paragraph should be deleted. Also, she pointed out that there should be a motion and a second for the approval of the minutes.) Gordon made a motion that the minutes be approved as amended; there was a second and a unanimous vote to approve the minutes. The single agenda item was the COA application for 900 Rock, to remove the structure's original metal roof and replace it with architectural asphalt shingles. Weldon stated that there was no certified listing of property owners as required by ordinance. There was discussion about how the certified list is obtained and the "due process" for an application. The applicant's agent, Lisa Cornwell, reviewed the application request, the estimates for repairing the roof, replacing it with a new metal roof, installing asphalt shingles, etc. Greer stated his concern for the subject roof as it is one of the few original ones remaining in the district. Two calls of complaint were submitted to staff regarding the removal of the original roof. The agent stated that they had decided to postpone constructing a new fence. Discussion focused on various items missing from the application request to prove the need for a new roof. It was decided that the agent must submit the following: 1) cost estimates of repairing the existing, new metal roof and asphalt; 2) certified listing of property owners; 3) written inspections from engineer or other; and 4) interior photographs documenting the conditions due to a leaking roof. The agent will notify staff prior to 12 April, the deferred meeting date. Little Rock Historic District Commission 5 April 2001 Minutes, Page 2 Under new and old business, an update on the CLG grant application to review the district's design guidelines was presented by state CLG Coordinator Cary Tyson; the city's application of $4,000 for review of design guidelines will be decided by the state Historic Preservation Program in May. There was discussion also regarding the noncompliance of 1000 Rock; the approved COA application is noncompliant as the owner installed vinyl windows, which were not approved. The future situation was discussed; there was a motion to take the noncompliance of 1000 Rock to the next step by issuing a petition for an injunction in the county chancery court; it was unanimously approved. As there was no other business, the LRHDC meeting was deferred until April 12. 25 April 2001 Meeting Minutes Commissioners Present: John Greer Howard H. Gordon Jean Ann Phillips Commissioners Absent: Wyatt Weems Mark Zoeller Staff Present: V.

The agent presented the certified listing of property owners and interior photographs; prior to the meeting, the requested documentation (the cost estimates and written inspection of the structure's condition) was distributed to members . There was a review of the condition/inspection report and three cost estimates to repair the existing metal roof, to install a new metal roof and to install asphalt shingles.

There was a motion to replace the metal roof as presented to the LRHDC with architectural asphalt shingles; if there are additional changes, staff will be notified. After a second, the vote unanimously approved the replacement of the original metal roof. After a brief discussion about the regularly scheduled meeting, the meeting was adjourned.
