        Board Comments

        and Actions:

      • President Kelley stated that this has been an educational process for all involved.

                  • An amendment to the draft was handed out at this hearing with one minor correction - in the first paragraph, delete the word "more" in the first sentence.

                  • President Kelley stated that the amendment essentially speaks to a related development, that is the creation of the community based movement to assert itself and its rights in the face of governmental action that had harmed it. He recommended that the amendment be included in the document in a place mutually agreed upon by the Task Force and himself as representing the Landmarks Board.

                      • President Kelley presented a draft resolution for consideration by the Landmarks Board with a correction: delete the second to the last paragraph "Further directs that a copy.....be forwarded to the State Office of Historic Preservation.....".

                  • After President Kelley gave an overview of the draft context statement, it was moved by Member Finwall (seconded by Skrondal) to adopt the draft context statement based on the draft resolution with correction and move it forward to the Planning Commission for endorsement. Note: suggestions made by Members of the Landmarks Board and members of the public will be taken under advisement. The vote was unanimous (Cherny, Finwall, Kelley, Kotas, Shatara and Skrondal; absent: Dearman Ho-Belli and Samuels).
