Historic Preservation Board Meeting Minutes - November 3, 2011

1) Request for Certificate of Appropriateness

      145 N.E. 94th Street

Exterior Addition/Renovation


Property owner, Kirk Wagar was present and outlined the proposed addition to the home. The plan is to extend the rear kitchen wall to meet the existing rear wall of the dining room area and to build a covered terrace area on the east side of the home. The second floor renovations call for building a master bath in the second floor area created by the expansion of the kitchen, enclosing an existing second story terrace to create a master bedroom and to build a second story outside terrace on the flat roof of the newly created first floor outside covered terrace. The proposed renovation provides additional interior space in a more usable/livable floor plan. The proposed renovation squares up the building footprint on the large lot.

Board Members discussed the plan with Mr. Wagar, offering suggestions and clarifying design elements contained on the plans. Mr. Wagar indicated that the home had been in foreclosure and vacant for approximately one year and that the property needs quite a bit of maintenance.


Following the discussions, Ms. Korman moved to approve the plans as presented, specifically allowing the expansion of the non-conforming 5’ setback of the west wall. The approval of the plans are conditional upon revising the floor plan drawings so that the arches in the 1st floor covered terrace are as shown in the east elevation drawing. Mr. Mennes seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion.

It was determined that Mr. Wagar would request additional approvals regarding the front door opening, and exterior paint colors.



The November 3, 2011 was adjourned at 8:05 PM.
