As of:

  • 5/14/13: This application was approved at today’s LPC public meeting, and is now closed. The commissioners were satisfied that the rooftop addition was set back and, therefore, no longer visible; they also approved of the changes to the rear elevation, which included the windows that are now in alignment with each other (rather than being more haphazard in layout as they were in the earlier iteration).
  • 5/10/13: LPC public meeting scheduled for 5/14. Testimony is not taken at this time, but the public is welcome to attend.
  • 4/10/13: The commissioners took a vote of no action at yesterday’s LPC public meeting. They asked that the applicant work with LPC staff to rethink the design of the rear elevation and to make the rooftop addition not visible from the street. The applicant will present at a future public meeting, date TBD.
