Committee Actions/Submissions

Date: September 10, 2015
Committee: Staff
Action Type: Initial Plan Submission
Date: September 23, 2015
Committee: Local Design Review Committee
Action Type: Conceptual Approval

Committee provided project sponsor with advisory opinion on how to proceed.  Instructed him to explore w/th City's Department of Building & Housing:  (1) a change in the direction of the front door swing from current outward direction to inward, given that the building's legal occupancy is less than 50 persons; (2) the installation of a landing & ramp design that represents less of a potential encroachment into the public right-of-way than that depicted on current plans.  The height of this design should be only  as tall as the first step, a solution that may not require the installation of a railing.
