    4633 Arden Avenue is located on the east side of Arden Avenue, just north of Country Club Road. The existing home on the subject property was built in 1938 and is classified as an American colonial cottage style in the Country Club National Register nomination documents. The current application is for an amendment to the approved COA, specifically for the reconstructed chimney and for changes to the front entry. The city's building official ordered the chimney be removed for safety reasons and the request to the HPC is for the design of the replacement chimney. The applicant is requesting a larger front door and changes to the front porch to accommodate a zero entry doorway. The additional door height will be extended lower (the height of the house is not changing).

    This request is on the October 10, HPC meeting agenda.
