Townsite - Kendrick Window Replacement without permit - resubmitted for review
213 N Kendrick
Type of Approval:
Returned for corrections
The home is a historically contributing property within Townsite Historic District and had windows replaced with hollow vinyl window without a permit or HPC application for design review. The HPO has previously reviewed the project and found that the submission was incomplete. The contractor resubmitted the project for a review and permit and was again incomplete and did not address comments on previous submission. The HPO has asked that the applicant submit a HPC application for a Certificate of Appropriateness or Economic Hardship. Contractor continues to insist that the permit should be approved based on the poor condition of the previous windows (which were removed), this is not an appropriate basis for approving design review in the Townsite Overlay. The HPO will continue to work with the applicant to ensure a complete submission before bringing the case forward to the Commission.
Even though the home is on the west bank of the Rio and mostly hidden from view and only accessible by the alley it is still within the Townsite Historic Overlay; as such, compliance with Townsite Design Review requirements is mandated. With the contractor apparently unable to comply with submission requirements an additional approach may be required with the owners submitting a Certificate of Economic Hardship. Even with that hardship potentially granted, design review is still required for review of the window trim detailing to be finished. Greater team participation from building codes would be helpful in resolving non-permitted projects and are not the full responsibility of the Heritage Preservation Program.
