4600 Browndale Avenue-Consideration of Historical Significance Status
11/9/20 Update: The applicant has withdrawn their appeal to City Council. This item will not be on the November 17th City Council agenda.
The Heritage Preservation Commission denied the applicants request at the October 13, 2020 HPC meeting. The applicant has appealed the decision made by the Heritage Preservation Commission and will be on the November 17th City Council agenda.
The request is to determine that the house at 4600 Browndale Avenue ( built in 1929) no longer contributes to the historical significance of the District due to deterioration, damage, and prior additions and alterations that have compromised its historic value and therefore is eligible to be torn down.
Any home constructed in the Country Club District between 1924-1944 is identified in the County Club Plan of Treatment as Heritage Preservation Resources. Prior to any review of a COA application for demolition or removal of a Heritage Preservation Resource, the HPC will accept evidence and documentation supporting an applicant’s claim that a property is not a Heritage Preservation Resource at a regular monthly meeting. This request will be heard by the Heritage Preservation Commission on Tuesday, October 13th. If the HPC determines the property is not a Heritage Preservation Resource, the applicant may move forward with an application for a COA for the new construction.
This item is on the October 13, 2020 Heritage Preservation Commission meeting.
