Title

Appeal of John Mathern to a Vacant Building Registration Fee Warning Letter at 1905 IGLEHART AVENUE.

 

Date/Time of 1st LH:  Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Teleconference call between 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Purpose of Appeal: 

Building permit is applied for and work will commence once permit is issued.  A basement permit already has been issued.

This is a lengthy process to preserve the exterior of this Augustus Gauger designed home.  The house was moved onto a new foundation in order to preserve it with the approval of the neighborhood who have been very vocal in seeking its preservation.

The cost of renovation and preservation is significant and funds diverted to pay for a vacant building permit, as well as the building permit, the basement permit, and moving the house is extraordinary and depletes funds for renovation.

Date of Order(s) Under Appeal:  August 17, 2020

Inspector/Key Staff:  Rick Gavin
