Executive Summary

 

The property owner of the house at 414 North Perry Street is seeking to demolish the house. The house is located on the east side of Perry Street, north of 4th Street, and directly north of the “Rink at the Rock” pavilion. Any structure within the historic downtown area built before 1945 must get a recommendation from the Historic Preservation Board and approval from Town Council prior to issuance of a demolition permit. The house was built around 1930/1931 with several significant alterations over the years. The house is not historically landmarked. The Historic Preservation Board voted 6-0 on July 6, 2022 to recommend approval of the demolition.

 

Background

 

History of the Property & Existing Conditions

 

The first documented building at this location was a grist mill built in 1907 by Charles Herb. In approximetly 1930/1931, the grist mill was torn down and a new dwelling was constructed on the property by George Carmer. In 1972, the owner Gertrude Mikelson Kratzer, moved a 861 sq. ft. house from Franktown onto the property (Franktown House). To connect the Franktown House to the existing house an addition was built on the west side of the home. An addition to the east side was also constructed at this time. Between 1986-1996, the addition connecting the two buildings on the west side was partially removed severing the connection between the two homes. The remaining portion of the addition was modified and made into a porch for the original home. In 2012, the property was replatted and became a part of the 404 North Perry Street property. At this time, the Franktown House was demolished to make way for the ice skating pavillion. Further details on the house, property, and its owners can be found with the attached updated Cultural Resource Survey (Attachment A).

 

Due to the numerous alterations to the house over its lifetime the historic design and materials of the building are no longer evident and the appearance of the house provides no suggestion to its age.

 

Proposed Demolition

The owner has requested the approval to demolish the existing house in its entirety. Any structure within the historic downtown area built before 1945 must get a recommendation from the Historic Preservation Board and approval from Town Council prior to issuance of a demolition permit. The demolition of the house would make way for a proposed development project called “Perry Street Social”.

 

Notification and Outreach Efforts

 

Public Notice

The applicant mailed public notice of the public hearing to all property owners within 500 feet of the property at least 15 days prior to the HPB hearing date. In addition, Town staff posted public notice signs on the property, published notice of the public hearing on the Town’s website and made the application available for review on the Town's Development Activity Map. 

 

Neighborhood Meetings

The applicant has held two neighborhood meetings regarding their overall development plan. The two meetings were both held virtually and were held on May 17, 2021 and June 2, 2022. No concerns regarding the demolition of the house were made by attendees. Summaries of the two meetings have been attached (Attachment C).
