Hearings & Action Items
HDC 14-08: Hold a
public hearing and take action on a request for a Certificate of
Appropriateness to enclose the existing garage door opening on the property at
810 Coryell Street, located on the north side of Coryell Street between Kansas
Avenue and Iowa Avenue.
Commissioner Guglielmo opened
the public hearing at 6:05 pm.
Ms. McMillin presented the staff report. She explained that the applicant has
requested a Certificate of Appropriateness to enclose the garage door opening
and install two square vinyl windows. She also explained that the
ordinance dictates that only two different types of windows are permitted on
the front elevation of a house within the historic district.
The applicant, Robert Arrizola,
stated that the existing windows on the home are aluminum, while the proposed
new windows are vinyl.
Commissioner McDougal questioned how the ordinance
defines ?window style,? and also asked whether there have been any similar
requests for a Certificate of Appropriateness. Ms. McMillin stated that
the ordinance does not define ?window style.? She further stated that
there have been no similar requests in the past year.
Commissioner Guglielmo asked what the difference is between the windows on
the left and right of the house. Ms. McMillin explained that the windows
on the left are a pair of single hung, nine over six aluminum windows, while
the window on the right is a fixed window with an arch detail at the top.
Commissioner McDougal stated that the Commission should agree upon a
definition of ?window style? before making a decision about the request.
She further stated that, should a similar request be made in the future, the
decision made at this hearing could set a precedent for future decisions.
Commissioner McDougal proposed four criteria for determining window
style: shape, material, color, and number of lites.
She further stated that the decision before the Commission is whether or not
the windows currently in place on the house constitute the same style of
Commissioner Guglielmo closed the public hearing at 6:28 pm.
Commissioner McDougal made a motion to approve the
request for a Certificate of Appropriateness to enclose the garage with the
condition that the material of the new windows matches the material of the
existing windows on the home.
seconded, motion passed 5-0-0.
McDougal suggested that the applicant choose a window with low-E glass.
Guglielmo requested that a discussion item be added to the next agenda
regarding parking and drainage issues in the Historic District.
Staff had no comments.
The meeting was
adjourned at 6:35 pm.
