Board Comments:

The front façade should be preserved. It is not clear how much of this building exist. Recommended to minus the front appendix (footprint). Suggested the year to the same as the sandborn map. The Board feels the building does not have integrated because none of the windows are original.  The building retain substantial integrated of location, design, setting, exterior material, workmanship, feeling and association – suggested crossing out the word  substantial, setting, material and other elements did not have integrate of materials, the only remaining dwelling, criterion A and C - keep  location, design, feeling and association, workmanship, front façade and siding . Questioned the door was original and if there was any evidence of decorative ship molding? Recommended forwarding the LPAB comments to the Planning Commission.
