I BELIEVE ITEM A THREE PASSED ON CONSENT.

UM, SO OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS FOR ITEM B ONE SIX OH TWO HIGHLAND, UH, MS. BECKY JANES.

HI.

UM, SO ON SIX FOOT, TWO HIGHLAND, UM, WE WERE ON MONTH TWO.

WE HAVE GONE THROUGH A FEW MONTHS NOW MEETING WITH, UM, HIS WORK COMMISSION AND AWANA AND RELEVANT STAKEHOLDERS TO, YOU KNOW, FIND THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR THIS PROJECT.

UM, IT'S A SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE, UH, JOINED BY COMMERCIAL TO THE SOUTH WITH ONE ADJOINING SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBOR TO THE NORTH, UM, FRONT, UM, THE STREET, SORRY, HIGHLAND AT THE FRONT.

AND THEN THERE'S AN ALLEY THAT ABUTS ACROSS, UH, TOBACCO.

UM, PRIOR TO THE OWNERSHIP THAT OWNED THE LOT WAS CONDO TO DO A FRONT AND REAR UNIT.

AND THE SUBJECT PROPERTY TONIGHT IS THE FRONT UNIT, BUT THE REAR UNIT RECENTLY STARTING CONSTRUCTION, THE OWNERS LOOKING TO ADD A SECOND STORY, ADDITION TO THE HOME, ALONG WITH A ROOF DECK, UM, OFF THE ADDITION ON THAT SECOND STORY LEVEL, THE SIDE OF THE ADDITION, OR, SORRY, THE SIZE OF THE ADDITION IS CONTROLLED BY THE AVAILABLE SAR.

UM, AND BUT AFTER MEETING WITH AWANA AND HISTORIC COMMISSION AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS, UH, WE'VE DISTRIBUTED THAT AREA IN SUCH A WAY THAT KIND OF KEEPS WITH THE CHARACTER OF THE HOUSE.

THE SECOND FLOOR DECK IS POSITIONED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE RESIDENCE, AWAY FROM THE ADJACENT NEIGHBOR OVERLOOKING KIND OF A SIDE YARD SIDE COURTYARD SPACE, AND THEN THE, UM, ADJOINING COMMERCIAL SPACE TO THE SOUTH.

UH, THE OWNER IS ALSO LOOKING TO ADD A FREESTANDING CARPORT TO THE SOUTH OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE, UM, THE SOUTH OF THE RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURE.

THESE, UH, THE CARPET WILL BE A STEEL STRUCTURE.

THAT'S CANTILEVERED AWAY FROM THE HOUSE, UM, INTO THAT KIND OF SIDE YARD SPACE.

UM, BASED ON THE LAST TEST OR COMMISSION MEETING, WE'VE REDUCED THE HEIGHT OF THE SECOND FLOOR ADDITION, UM, AS WE WERE ABLE TO, WE PULLED BACK, UM, THE STREET ED SIDE OF THE DECK SO THAT IT WAS A CLEAR 15 FEET FROM THE FRONT WALL OF THE, UH, RESIDENCE, UM, UM, THE ACTUAL KIND OF ENCLOSURE OF THE RESIDENCE.

AND THEN WE SHIFTED THE CARPORT, UM, JUST BEYOND THE SPACE OF THE BUILDING.

UM, WE HAVE KIND OF SOME BALANCE BETWEEN GRADING AND THEN THE DISTRICT STANDARDS THAT WE'RE TRYING TO WORK WITH TO FIND THE RIGHT PLACE FOR THIS CARPORT STRUCTURE BECAUSE OF THE WAY, THE LOT LOAD THAT, UM, IT'S, UM, A LESS DESIRABLE SLIP FOR PARKING.

UM, SO WE'RE, WE'VE SHIFTED IT BACK ABOUT FOUR FEET WE'VE, UM, RELOCATED A RETAINING WALL.

UM, AND, UH, SO NOW THE CARPET SITS JUST SLIGHTLY BACK BEYOND THE WALL AND THE RESIDENCE.

[00:45:01]

UM, THIS IS, LET'S SEE, I THINK I'VE COVERED THE, I WILL POINT OUT THAT BECAUSE I SEE THE STAFF COMMENTS TONIGHT ABOUT THE CAR COURT.

I WILL POINT OUT THAT, UM, THERE WAS A SIMILAR CAR PORT CAN ONLY RESTRUCTURE A FEW DOORS DOWN FROM THIS RESIDENT THAT HAS JUST ABOUT THE SAME RELATIONSHIP THAT WE'RE PROPOSING HERE, JUST SLIGHTLY BEHIND THE FACE OF THE WALL.

UM, WE ALSO HAVE THE OWNER ON THE LINE WHO WANTS TO SPEAK AS WELL.

EXCUSE ME.

UM, THIS IS, UH, RICHARD WHITE SPEAKING AGAIN FROM ITEM TO TWO.

UH, I THOUGHT THAT WE CLOSED OUT EACH ITEM BEFORE WE WENT ONTO THE NEXT ONE REMOTELY.

WE, WE TOOK ALL OF THE SPEAKERS IN FAVOR AND THERE WAS NO ONE OBJECTING WE'RE TAKING ALL OF THE SPEAKERS.

THEN THE COMMISSION WILL HEAR EACH CASE.

OH GOD, I'M SORRY.

I SHOULD HAVE, I SHOULD HAVE ANNOUNCED THAT AT THE BEGINNING.

OKAY.

IT'S JUST DIFFICULTY BRINGING SPEAKERS IN.

UM, WELL, WE'RE TRYING TO SEE THE PRESENTATIONS.

OKAY.

UM, IS THERE IS, UH, THE APPLICANT OR THE OWNER WISHES TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THIS ITEM AT SIX OH TWO HIGHLAND? YES.

YEAH, GO AHEAD, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

HI, GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

MY NAME'S ALAINA MARTINEZ.

SO MY HUSBAND AND I ARE THE OWNERS AS SICK TOO TO HIGHLAND.

AND I JUST WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION TODAY.

I'M HERE TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL, WHY WE'RE ASKING FOR THIS APPROVAL EVER SINCE MY HUSBAND AND I WENT TO SEE OUR HOUSE, WE REALLY FELL INSTANTLY IN LOVE, AND WE'RE REALLY DETERMINED TO KEEP THE HISTORIC CHARM.

IT HAS.

WE REALLY CONSIDER OURSELVES LUCKY TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PURCHASE A HISTORIC PHONE WHOSE PREVIOUS OWNER DID A MARVELOUS AND DETAILED JOB IN RESTORING THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR, THE HOMES, UNIQUENESS, AND THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

THE LORE ARE WHAT MADE US WANT TO LIVE IN OUR HOME.

WHEN WE INITIALLY MOVED INTO OUR HOUSE, MY HUSBAND AND I WERE ENGAGED AND RECENTLY MARRIED IN MY HOMETOWN IN PUERTO RICO.

WE ARE CURRENTLY, UM, A FAMILY OF THREE, UM, US TWO, AND THEN INCLUDING OUR DOG.

AND AS WE STARTED THINKING ABOUT OUR FUTURE AND HAVING CHILDREN, WE REALLY CAME TO THE AGREEMENT THAT WE WOULD LOVE ADDITIONAL SPACE BEFORE EXPANDING OUR FAMILY.

THEN COVID CAME INTO OUR LIVES LIKE A TIDAL WAVE IN OUR SHIP WAS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.

WE IMMEDIATELY FOUND OURSELVES BOTH WORKING FROM HOME, LIKE THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN AND MADE THE BEST USE OF OUR SECOND ROOM AND CONVERTED INTO OUR WORKING SPACE.

MY HUSBAND WAS ACTUALLY ALREADY WORKING FROM HOME, BUT PRIOR TO COVID AND NOW I'M FACED WITH, UM, WORKING FROM HOME A HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE TIME, AT LEAST UNTIL NEXT JUNE AFTER JUNE, I'LL STILL BE EXPECTED TO WORK FROM HOME.

PARTIALLY DURING MY WORKING WEEK, WE WOULD LIKE TO BUILD A SECOND FLOOR TO REALLY HAVE AN ADEQUATE PERMANENT OFFICE SPACE FOR BOTH OF US.

AND AT THE SAME TIME STILL HAVE SPACE TO GROW OUR FAMILY.

WE HAVE WORKED DILIGENTLY WITH OUR ARCHITECTS, BECKY, AND THE CITY TO MAKE SURE THIS SECOND FLOOR WILL FLOW AND REALLY JUST BLEND BEAUTIFULLY WITH OUR HOME AND OUR NEIGHBORHOODS CHARM.

WE'VE REALLY BEEN TRANSPARENT WITH OUR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR AND NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, AND HAVE SHARED OUR PLAN, ASK FOR FEEDBACK AND INCORPORATED THEIR FEEDBACK INTO OUR PLANS MULTIPLE TIMES.

AND REALLY HONESTLY, WE WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BUILD FLAT ON THE GROUND AND NOT UP, BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE DON'T OWN THE BACK PART OF OUR HOUSE SINCE OUR LOT WAS PREVIOUSLY BOUGHT AND THEN SPLIT AND RESOLD.

WE ARE ASKING FOR HISTORIC APPROVAL TODAY TO GIVE US A CHANCE FOR US TO OPTIMIZE OUR SPACE FOR AN OFFICE AND ALSO AN AREA TO TAKE A BREATHER AND GET FRESH AIR THROUGHOUT OUR WORKING DAYS, WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF OUR BLOCK.

I JUST WANT TO THANK EVERYONE AGAIN FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU.

WHEN ELSE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THIS APPLICATION, HEARING NONE.

IS THERE ANYONE OPPOSED TO THE APPLICATION WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK? YES, MIGUEL IS NEXT ON THE LIST.

OKAY.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, I'M JUST THINKING OUT OF MUTE.

CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY.

UH, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME

[00:50:01]

AGAIN AND, AND, UM, YES, MIGUEL RIVERA.

I'M A NEIGHBOR TO UMPIRE OF THE ONE, UH, SONY COMMITTEE.

I SPOKE LAST TIME IN OPPOSITION.

TODAY'S, UH, THESE HOUSE LIKE THE OWNER JUSTICE PRES UM, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A SECOND FLOOR, BUT HE'S REALLY IN THEORY, A THIRD FLOOR FLOOR.

THEY ARE CURRENTLY IN CONSTRUCTION TO HAVE A BASEMENT, WHICH IS THE SAME FOOTPRINT OF THE HOUSE ABOVE.

SO THEY'RE DOUBLING THE SPACE THAT THEY HAVE.

AND THEY'RE LOOKING TO ADD A SECOND FLOOR THAT BOTH FROM THIS SIDE ON THE BACK IS ACTUALLY A THIRD FLOOR MAXIMIZING THE HIGH.

WE HAVE SEVERAL CONVERSATIONS WITH THE ARCHITECT, UM, AND THE PHOTOGRAPH THAT WE SEEN, OR THE RENDERINGS FROM THAT'S BEEN SHOWN TO US, OUR PHONE VIEWS THAT ARE NOT REALLY, UH, REALISTIC.

THEY'RE KIND OF ON THE THREE ANGLES THAT YOU REALLY SEE, VERY LITTLE OF THE REALITY OF THE PERSPECTIVE AS YOU'RE WALKING IN THE SIDEWALK OR WORKING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS NOT A REALISTIC VIEW.

UM, I THINK THE OWNER IS GOING TO SHOW YOU SOME VIEWS THAT ARE MORE REALISTIC.

WE THINK THAT, UH, THIS IS OUR HISTORIC DISTRICT.

YOU ARE THE GROUP THAT IS PROTECTING THAT HISTORIC LANDMARKS IN OUR CITY AND THIS EDITION, WHICH, UM, HE'S NOT REALLY, UH, ADDING THAT MUCH SQUARE FOOTAGE TO THEM.

THEY HAVE PLENTY ALREADY.

AND, UM, IT'S REALLY, UH, OUT OF PROPORTION WITH THE SCALE AND THE CHARACTER OF THIS HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD, WHICH GOES AGAINST WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO, WHICH IS PROTECTING, UH, THAT LANDMARK, UM, SITUATION IN THERE.

UH, EVEN IF YOU KNOW, PART OF DISEASE IN THE BACK, I I'M AN ARCHITECT AND I BELIEVE THAT BUILDINGS SHOULD LOOK GOOD FROM ALL SIDES, NOT JUST FROM THE STREET, IT SHOULD BE, UH, DON'T PROPORTIONALITY, UH, HISTORICALLY, UH, ADEQUATE, UM, FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE ALSO DISCUSS ABOUT HAVING SOME WINDOWS TO THE NORTH THAT WERE SMALLER.

AT SOME POINT WERE SMALLER AND LATER IT BECAME MUCH TALLER.

ONE LAST COMMENT.

UH, THE CURRENT BASEMENT IS NINE FOOT CEILING.

ACCORDING TO THE DRAWINGS WE HAVE THIS FIRST FLOOR IS NINE FOOT FIVE INCHES.

AND THE SECOND FLOOR THAT THEY'RE ADDING IS NINE FOOT TALL.

UH, WE ASKED IN ONE OF THE MEETINGS, IF THAT COULD BE EIGHT AND THERE'S, AS FAR AS I KNOW FROM TODAY IS NINE FOOT TALL.

SO IN, IN, IN, IN CONCLUSION IS I THINK IS OUT OF PROPORTION TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND HE GOES AGAINST THE HISTORIC LANDMARK, UH, CONNOTATION AND 10TH.

AND, UH, WE WISH THAT, UH, SO MORE OF THESE COMMENTS THAT WE DISCUSSED WITH THEM WERE INCORPORATED, AND THERE WERE NOT FOR THAT REASON.

I DIDN'T SIGN NEXT ON THE LIST IS MARINE MED HOUR.

HI, THANK YOU.

CAN Y'ALL HEAR ME? YES.

PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND SPEAK TO THE KIDS.

I'M AN OLD WEST HAAS AND ALSO A MEMBER OF THE ALANA'S ZONING COMMITTEE.

UM, AND I SET UP AN OPPOSITION.

UM, MIGUEL REALLY COVERED A LOT OF IT.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO ADD, UM, IT'S UNUSUAL THAT THESE PERMITS ARE BEING DONE ONE AND ONE AFTER ANOTHER, UH, THIS CAME UP LAST TIME.

WE HAD NO OBJECTION TO THE BASEMENT PERMIT.

WE THOUGHT THAT WAS GREAT.

UH, HOWEVER, THIS ADDITION, WHICH, UH, WE'VE TOLD THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN, IT REALLY IS, UH, OVERPOWERING THE, THE ORIGINAL HOUSE, THE CONTRIBUTING HOUSE.

IT'S, IT'S VERY TALL.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PROPERTIES ON THE STREET THAT DO MAKE USE OF THEIR ATTIC SPACE TO BASICALLY GET A THIRD STORY OUT WITHOUT SUBSTANTIALLY CHANGING THE STRUCTURE OF THE ORIGINAL PROPERTY.

AND WE HAD ENCOURAGED THEM TO LOOK AT THAT.

HOWEVER, IT WAS IGNORED.

WE THINK IT'S VIOLATING, UH, THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ADDITIONS TO CONTRIBUTING BUILDINGS.

AND LASTLY, THE, UH, ROOF DOCK, WHILE IT'S BEEN PUSHED BACK PER THE 15 FOOT, NO BUILD AREA ON THE ORIGINAL HOUSE AND THE DESIGN STANDARDS, IT'S STILL VERY, VERY PROMINENT.

AND THERE ARE NO, NO ROOTSTOCKS THAT FACED THE FRONT FACADE OF CONTRIBUTING PROPERTIES ANYWHERE IN THE DISTRICT OR EITHER, OR THE OTHER TWO HISTORIC DISTRICTS THAT ENCOMPASS THAT ARE

[00:55:01]

ENCOMPASSED IN AWANA.

SO, UH, SETTING THIS WOULD NOT BE GOOD FOR SMOOTH TERRACE PARK.

WE WOULD REALLY ASK YOU TO CONSIDER THAT PLENTY OF ROOF DECKS IN THE BACK, PLENTY OF ROOF DOCKS ELSEWHERE, BUT, BUT THIS IS REALLY A DEPARTURE FROM WHAT IS TYPICAL FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, THE NEXT SPEAKER AND OPPOSITION.

NEXT IS SHEILA THE LION.

IS SHE THE LITTLE LION? YES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? OKAY, GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

I AM SHEILA LYON.

THEY WANNA ZONING CHAIR AND HERE TO SUMMARIZE THE SECOND STORY ADDITION AT SIX OH TWO HIGHLAND AVENUE HAS MADE REVISIONS FOR THE BETTER BASED ON FEEDBACK FROM THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW COMMITTEE AND THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION.

OTHER REVISIONS ARE AN IMPROVEMENT.

THE AWANA ZONING COMMITTEE STILL OPPOSES THE SECOND STORY ADDITION FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS.

NUMBER ONE, NEW ADDITION SHOULD BE COMPATIBLE WITH HISTORIC BUILDING BY REFLECTING THE SCALE AND MISSING THE HISTORIC HOMES IN THE SMOOT TERRACE PARK, LHD ARE ONE OR TWO STORY HOMES, ANY THIRD STORIES THAT EXIST MADE USE OF ADDICTS OR VERY LOW HUNG ROOF LINES.

IN ADDITION TO SIX OH TWO HIGHLAND IS AT A SCALE AS IT SITS ON TOP OF THE EXISTING HISTORIC HOME AND THAT UNDER THE EXISTING ROOF LINE, THIS CREATES AN, THAT HISTORIC PRECEDENT AND WOULD BE THE FIRST OF ITS KIND DESIGN NUMBER TWO DESIGN, NEW ADDITIONS THAT ARE SUBORDINATE TO AND DO NOT OVERPOWER THIS HISTORIC DISTRICT.

THE TWO PERSPECTIVES SHOWN ON THE PLANS ATTEMPT TO STRONGLY SUGGESTED ADDITIONAL WILL NOT OVERPOWER THE ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTING HOME.

THIS IS NOT THE CASE.

HIGHLAND AVENUE IS SLOPING.

SO THE ADDITION SEEMS HIGHLY PROMINENT AND INTRUSIVE AT DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES.

RECENT PHOTOS WERE TAKEN ON HIGHLAND AVENUE AND SIXTH STREET TO SHOW ACCURATE VIEWS OF 602 HIGHLAND TO GIVE AN APPROXIMATE IDEA.

BUT THE PROPOSED ADDITION WILL LOOK LIKE DRAWINGS OF THE PROPOSED ADDITION AND DECK ARE SUPERIMPOSED ON THE PHOTO.

YOU CAN SEE THE ATTACHED PHOTOS WITH THE LETTER AND DRUGS OF THE LETTER AND COMPARISON.

THE ACTUAL REASON PHOTOS SHOW THE PROPOSED CROW'S NEST EDITION AND PEOPLE ON SEX WILL BE MORE VISIBLE FROM HIGHLAND AVENUE THAN INDICATED BY THE PERSPECTIVES FROM THE PROPOSED PLANS.

THE VIEW FROM SIXTH STREET IS NOT BEEN PRESENTED BEFORE, BUT CLEARLY AND VISIBLY SHOWS A THREE-STORY HOME LOCATED AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE SMOOTH TERRACE PARK LHD, THE STREET SIGN AT HIGHLAND AND SIX WILL SOON BARRETT, UH, SMOOT TERRACE PARK SIGNS, TOPPER.

CURRENT STREET VIEW PHOTO SHOULD BE A REQUIREMENT FOR ALL LOCAL HISTORIC DISTRICT APPLICATIONS.

NUMBER THREE, HISTORIC HOMES IN THE SMOOT TERRACE PARK.

LHD DO NOT HAVE UPPER STORY DECKS VISIBLE FROM THE STREET ON HIGHLAND OR SIXTH STREET, UPPER STORY ROOF DECKS ON THE FRONT FACADE OF HOUSES AND ARE VISIBLE FROM THE STREET, DO NOT EXIST ON HISTORIC BUNGALOW HOMES AND SMOOTH TERRACE LHD.

THIS CREATES A NON HISTORIC PRECEDENT AND GIVING THE SIGNAL TO OTHERS THAT LOCAL HISTORIC DESIGNATIONS AND GUIDELINES ARE WITHOUT MERIT AND WILL NOT BE RESPECTED.

I'LL PULLING THE UPPER STORY.

DECK BACK FROM THE FRONT OF HOUSE IS A DEFINITE IMPROVEMENT.

PEOPLE ON THE DECK WILL BE VISIBLE FROM HIGHLAND AND SIXTH STREET.

NUMBER FOUR, THE NEIGHBORS BOARDING ON THE NURSE'S SIDE.

OPPOSED THE SECOND STORY ADDITION AS IT WILL BE OVERPOWERING FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE AND WILL SUBSTANTIALLY AFFECT THEIR PRIVACY.

THE ZONING COMMITTEE DOES NOT FEEL THE PROPOSED ADDITION IS A GOOD FIT FOR THIS TERRORIST PARK LHD.

WE DO NOT WANT TO SET A PRECEDENT FOR FRONT BESIDE ADDITIONS THAT ARE NOT IN SCALED TO THE ORIGINAL HISTORIC STRUCTURE OR FOR FRONT FACADE, ROOF DECKS, PLEASE DESIGN FOR THE SECOND STORY.

REAR ADDITION ENTRY, A THIRD STORY PRECEDENT, SETTING STRUCTURE, A STRUCTURE.

WHAT IS, WHICH IS CERTAIN TO GENERATE MORE PROTESTS AND CONFUSION IN THE FUTURE AS OTHER PROJECTS WILL FOLLOW SUIT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU.

THE NEXT SPEAKER IN OPPOSITION TO THIS APPLICATION IS NEXT SPEAKER IS SHAD REYNOLDS, SHAD RENTALS.

ARE YOU ON THE PHONE? YES.

YES.

PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND GOOD EVENING.

I APPRECIATE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK WITH YOU AGAIN THIS EVENING.

UH, MY NAME IS CHAD REYNOLDS AND I'VE BEEN AT 64 HIGHLAND AVENUE NEXT DOOR TO SIX OH TWO.

UH, SINCE 2003, I ATTENDED THIS MEETING LAST MONTH AND SPOKEN OPPOSITION TO THE MASSING AND THIS PROJECT AND THE PRECEDENT IT SETS FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

I WOULD AGAIN LIKE TO SPEAK TO THESE TOPICS AND I HAVE THREE SPECIFIC POINTS TO COVER.

FIRST.

THE RENDERING FROM THE NORTH SIDE OF THE HOUSE AS PRESENTED IS SOMEWHAT DISINGENUOUS, MISLEADING, GENERALLY NOT A PROPER REPRESENTATION OF HOW THIS PROJECT WILL ACTUALLY APPEAR ONCE COMPLETE AFTER SOME TRIAL AND ERROR.

WE DETERMINED THAT THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE ARCHITECT'S RENDERING IS JUST 12 TO 18

[01:00:01]

INCHES OFF OF THE STREET.

A FEW FEET NORTH OF THE PROPERTY HIGHLAND AVENUE WAS ON THE HILL.

HOWEVER, AND SO THIS PROPERTY WILL NATURALLY BE VIEWED FROM A VERY DIFFERENT ANGLE, UM, IN MY REQUEST TO SPEAK THIS EVENING AND IN A SEPARATE EMAIL TO THE COMMISSIONERS AND MR. SADOWSKY, I INCLUDED A RENDERING OF THIS PROJECT FOR MORE REPRESENTATIVE FOR A MORE REPRESENTATIVE, UH, POINT OF VIEW.

UM, THIS IS NOTED IN FIGURE TWO.

UH, SECOND, I HAVE ALSO INCLUDED PHOTOS OF THE BACK OF THE HOUSE TO GIVE SOME IDEA OF THE HEIGHT OF THIS PROPERTY FROM THE BACKSIDE, AS WELL AS THE PROXIMITY TO THE ADU BEING CONSTRUCTED BEHIND THIS PROJECT NOTED IN FIGURE THREE, IN TERMS OF HEIGHT, THIS THREE-STORY PROJECT IS A DEPARTURE FROM OTHER HOMES ON THE STREET AND IN THE LOCAL HISTORIC DISTRICT.

FINALLY, I WOULD LIKE TO CALL ATTENTION TO THE OVERALL PRECEDENT THAT THIS PROJECT SETS IS NOT HARD TO IMAGINE FUTURE PROJECTS, BOTH ON SILENT AND THROUGHOUT THIS MOVE TERRACE LHD USING THIS AS A PRECEDENT PRECEDENT FOR GOING UP CARVING HISTORIC ROOF LINES FOR ROOFTOP DECKS WITH EXTERIOR SPIRAL STAIRCASES COULD EASILY BECOME THE NORM AS ARCHITECTS AND DEVELOPERS STRIVE TO GIVE THEIR CLIENTS COVETED DOWNTOWN VIEWS.

I URGE YOU TO TAKE THESE FACTORS INTO CONSIDERATION AS YOU MAKE YOUR FINAL DECISION.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME TO SEE ME.

NO ONE ELSE HAS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK ON THE ITEM.

SO WE'LL MOVE TO NO ONE ELSE'S SIGNED UP TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM.

NO.

OKAY.

SO WE'LL MOVE TO B THREE, SIX 11 OAKLAND AVENUE.

WE HAVE CRAIG HABERMANN CRAIG, ARE YOU ON THE PHONE, MAKE YOUR CASE, STATE YOUR NAME, MAKE YOUR CASE WOMEN ARCHITECTS, OR SIX 11 OAKLAND AVENUE.

UH, I'VE INCLUDED, UH, TWO PRESENTATIONS IN THE BACKUP.

ONE OF THE DESIGNS THAT THE OTHER IS, UM, THE DEMO AREN'T GOOD DEMO THAT WE WILL DO.

AND, UM, A FEW RENDERS.

UH, WE MET, UM, THE PRE COMMISSION A FEW WEEKS AGO AND, UH, THERE WERE SOME, SOME ADJUSTMENTS THAT WE MADE THAT WE HAVE HAVE DONE.

I NOTICED THAT, UM, STAFF HAS MADE A RECOMMENDATION ABOUT REPAIRING EXISTING WINDOWS THING WAS LIKE W AND WE'RE SATISFIED WITH THAT.

UM, THERE HAS BEEN SOME PUSHBACK FROM THE NEIGHBORS IN REGARDS TO THE DESIGN STANDARDS, BUT I FEEL LIKE WE'VE MADE THE ACCOMMODATIONS TO MEET THESE.

UM, WE'VE HIDDEN THE MATH BEHIND THE EXISTING BUILDING.

WE'VE MATCHED THE GABLE.

THAT'S EXISTING.

I'VE INCLUDED A FEW DIAGRAMS THAT SHOW, UM, THE VIEWS FROM THE STREET AND THAT THE MATH IS HIDDEN FROM THE STREET.

UM, SPECIFICALLY ON SIX 13 OAKLAND, WE'VE MATCHED THE GABLE.

THAT'S ALREADY EXISTED.

THE SITE WE'VE MATCHED THE ROOF LINE.

THAT'S ALREADY EXISTING, UH, TO NOT OVERPOWER THAT HEALTH.

AND THEN THE HOUSE ON SIX OH NINE OAKLAND.

UH, THE EXTENSION IS, UH, MIRRORING THEIR, UM, DOUBLE HEIGHT WALL ON THE BACK.

WE'RE ALSO OVER 35 FEET, THE EXTENSIONS OVER 35 FEET AWAY FROM THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE.

AND WE'RE, UH, KEEPING WE'RE REMODELING THE INSIDE.

BUT THE, UM, THAT FRONT 35 FEET IS, UH, IS TO REMAIN, UH, WE REPLACED ROTTED BOARDS, REPAINT.

UM, THE ROOF IS IN GOOD SHAPE.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO REPLACE THAT.

UH, AND JUST THE WINDOWS.

UM, I SAW STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION AND WE'RE FINE TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE ON THE APPLICATION, UH, TO REPAIR EXISTING IN ANY OF THE DEMO PART.

IF THERE'S SOME THAT NEEDS PARTS, WE CAN USE THIS, UM, SORRY.

ONE MORE THING THAT WE DID CHANGE, UH, THERE WAS A COMMENT BY ONE OF THE COMMISSIONERS TO REDUCE, UM, THE WINDOW SIZE OF THE EXTENSION THAT ARE BEHIND THE SCREEN.

SO DURING THE DAY YOU DON'T SEE THOSE, BUT AT NIGHT YOU WOULD, IN THOSE, THE SIZE OF THOSE ARE NOW MATCHING, UH, THE EXISTING HOUSE, UM, SIZE, UH, IT DOESN'T SHOW IT ON THE RENDERS.

WE ENDED UP DOING THE RENDERS, BUT IT IS ON THE WINDOW SCHEDULE AND THEN THE ELEVATION.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, CRAIG.

IS THERE ANYONE ELSE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THIS APPLICATION? NO ONE ELSE SIGNED UP IN FAVOR, BUT WE DO HAVE JONATHAN BUCK WHO WAS SIGNED UP IN OPPOSITION.

OKAY.

JONATHAN, ARE YOU ON THE LINE? I AM.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, I CAN.

UM, GO AHEAD AND STATE YOUR NAME PLEASE.

AND, UM, YOU HAVE TWO MINUTES TO SPEAK.

THANK YOU.

MA'AM JONATHAN BUCK.

I LIVE, UH, AT SIX, 10 PRESSLER IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

[01:05:01]

UM, JUST LISTENING TO THIS PROCESS, I'VE HEARD A NUMBER OF APPLICANTS WHO HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOME NEIGHBORHOOD VETTING.

IT SOUNDED LIKE MR. HOBERMAN HAS SPOKEN TO SOME OTHER NEIGHBORS.

I, I UNFORTUNATELY NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT.

UH, INITIALLY I WOULD LIKE TO, AND TO GET SOME OF THE UPDATED RENDERINGS AND SO FORTH.

UM, I, I WOULD WELCOME THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT AND TO, UH, TO HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE'S AMENABLE TO DOING THAT, TO WAITING, UH, OR POSTPONING.

SHOULD I RESPOND? CAN I RESPOND TO THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER MYERS OR THE GO AHEAD? UM, I DID MEET, I DIDN'T MEET WITH THE, UH, UM, I GUESS THE, UH, HISTORICAL COMMITTEE FOR CLARKSVILLE AND I WOULDN'T BE HAVING A MEETING.

I REALLY DON'T WANT TO POSTPONE.

AND I EXPLAINED, I SENT A BUNCH OF IMAGES TO THE BOARD AND JUDY WHO IS AT SIX, 12 PRESSLER WAS SO THAT SHE WAS HAPPY TO PASS THOSE INFORMATION AROUND.

WE'VE ACTUALLY, WE'RE NOT EXTENDING PAST THE REAR PORCH.

WE'RE KEEPING THE SAME ROOF LINE IN, AND I SENT SOME PICTURES DEMONSTRATING THAT WE'VE ACTUALLY SHIFTED, UM, THE WINDOWS AWAY.

SO THAT YOUR VIEW IS OUR VIEW IS REALLY OF A TREE.

THE CLIENT IS ELDERLY AND THEY ARE MOSTLY HANDLING HABITAT IN THE GROUND FLOOR.

AND SO THE UPSTAIRS VIEW IS NOT IMPORTANT TO THEM.

AND, UM, WE'VE ACTUALLY FROM THE CURRENT VIEW OUT THE BACK, WE'VE ACTUALLY SHIFTED AWAY FROM VIEWING INTO, DOWN INTO PRESSLER.

AND I, AND I HAD APOLOGIZED TO THE BOARD BECAUSE I DIDN'T EVEN THINK TO THAT PRESSER WAS AN ISSUE BECAUSE IT'S BLOCKED BY A HUGE TREE AND WE HAVE SHIFTED THE WINDOWS.

UM, AND I DON'T SEE THAT WE WOULD CHANGE THIS DESIGN AT ALL, BECAUSE IT IS SUBSERVIENT TO THE HOUSE AND WE'RE NOT GOING PAST, UM, THE REAR FACADE AND WE ARE, UM, AND WE'VE, WE'VE ACTUALLY CHANGED THE WINDOWS SO THAT THEY'RE EVEN LOOKING AT THE BACKYARD LESS.

UM, BUT I'M HAVING TO HAVE A CONVERSATION, BUT I REALLY DON'T WANT, THIS IS TAKING QUITE A BIT OF TIME AND I REALLY DON'T WANT TO POSTPONE, OKAY, MAY I, MAY I, UH, BY OUR ORDER OF BUSINESS, WE DON'T ALLOW US, UH, ANOTHER, UH, REBUTTAL THAT WAS MOTION FOR MORE TIME.

I DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE TO ARTICULATE THE ITEMS THAT I WAS CONCERNED WITH.

I WASN'T AWARE THAT I, THAT I DIDN'T CONSIDER THAT I WAS JUST SEEING IF HE WAS AMENABLE TO A DELAY.

COULD I HAVE THE REMAINDER OF MY, UH, IS THAT POSSIBLE TO HAVE MANY, MANY MORE TIME JUST TO EXPRESS MY CONCERNS I EXPRESSING, SIR, PLEASE EXPRESS YOUR CONCERNS IN 30 SECONDS, THREE MINUTES.

I'M APPARENTLY NOT DOING THIS VERY WELL, UM, IN ANY EVENT.

SO I, I JUST LEARNED OF THIS, UH, THIS NEW PROJECT WHEN LOOKING THROUGH THE PLANS, WHICH MAY BE OLD PLANS EFFECTIVELY, I I'M, I'M IMMEDIATELY 80% OF MY HOUSE IS ALIGNED 80% OF MY LOT ALIGNS WITH THE SUBJECT LIE.

AND, UM, WHAT IT'S DOING IS ESSENTIALLY IT'S AN OLD CRAFTSMAN STYLE HOME, MODEST HOME FROM THE FRONT AND FROM THE BACK, IT'S SORT OF A, UH, VERY INTERESTING, UH, UH, MODERN SORT OF BUILDING.

BUT WHAT IT, WHAT IT'S DONE IS IT'S TAKEN BASICALLY LIKE A SMALL OUTDOOR PORCH, AND IT LOOKS LIKE AT LEAST FROM THE YARD, WHICH IS SITUATED ABOUT 10 FEET BELOW, IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S DESIGNED, LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE THREE STORIES.

UM, IT'S, IT'S TALLER THAN IT WAS BEFORE IT APPEARS I'M JUST GOING.

I HAVEN'T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO IT IT'S WIDER THAN IT WAS AND APPEARS TO BE CLOSER.

IT SOUNDS LIKE MAYBE THAT'S NOT THE CASE ANYMORE.

UM, BUT ANYWAY, I, THIS WAS SORT OF MY LAST OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS.

AND FIRST TO UNFORTUNATELY, UM, WITH THIS PROCESS, UH, THERE, THE TREE THAT'S REFERENCED, UH, IS THE, THE MAIN THING THAT IS IN THE WAY NOW IT'S JUST SOME, SOME MINOR, LIKE SOME BAMBOO THERE'S A TREE.

SO CERTAINLY, UM, WHICH I HADN'T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE, UH, THE IMPACT ON THE TREE.

BUT, UH, ANYWAY, I, I'M NOT NECESSARILY HERE IN OPPOSITION.

I JUST WASN'T GIVEN THAT OPPORTUNITY.

AND IT CERTAINLY THE STANDARDS, UH, OR WHETHER IT'S COMBATIVE COMPATIBLE, UH, WE, YOU CAN, YOU LOOK AT SIZE SCALE, MASSING AND MATERIALS.

THOSE THINGS ARE DIFFERENT.

AND THEN THE STANDARD OF WHETHER IT'S SUBORDINATE TO, IT SEEMS LIKE IF YOU TOOK A WALK AROUND, UH, THE PROPERTY, IT'S THIS BIG SORT OF MODERN BEING WITH BIG, GIANT WINDOWS THAT LOOK OKAY.

UM, YEAH.

SO ANYWAY, I,

[01:10:01]

I I'M CONCERNED THAT IT DOESN'T MEET THOSE GUIDELINES, THAT ONE, TWO AND THREE OF THE LOCAL HISTORICAL DISTRICT.

OKAY.

WE WILL, UH, WE WILL TAKE YOUR CONSIDERATIONS, UM, INTO OUR DISCUSSION WHEN WE, UM, SPEAK ABOUT THIS APPLICATION, WHEN IT COMES UP.

UM, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK STAFF SOMETHING, WE, UM, WE CHANGED THE TIME LIMITS FOR THE, UM, REMOTE MEETINGS.

WHAT ARE THE CURRENT TIME LIMITS FOR, UH, SPEAKERS? IT IS THREE MINUTES PER SPEAKER.

I'M SORRY.

I DIDN'T HEAR THAT THREE MINUTES PER SPEAKER WITH NO DONATION OF TIME.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UH, IS THERE ANYONE ELSE TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION TO THIS CASE? SIX 11 OAKLAND? NO ONE ELSE HAS SIGNED UP TO ITEM C3, 1700 WEST 32ND STREET.

OKAY.

THIS IS, UM, IN OLD WEST AUSTIN NATIONAL REGISTER DISTRICT, 1700 WEST 32ND STREET.

DO WE HAVE ANYONE TO SPEAK, UM, TO THIS APPLICATION? YES, LIKE ARCHITECT FOR THE APPLICANT HERE.

OKAY.

OKAY, PLEASE.

UM, YOU'VE GIVEN YOUR NAME, PLEASE GIVE US YOUR PRESENTATION.

CAN
