Board Comment(s):

  • Questioned if the project sponsor had contacted DPW regarding the sidewalk encroachment of the stairs? Asked why was the front door being moved? Asked the sponsor to do a massing study photo from looking downhill to compare the relationship to other buildings in the area and to look at the square footage. Are there any photos of the original porch? Concerned about flipping the front door and window. Have no problems with raising the building. Asked the sponsor to distinguish the new addition from the old. Suggested a set back of the rear addition so there can be a distinction between the old and the new. Suggested changing the vertical siding on the addition. Suggested changing the height of the siding.
