1. 101 3rd Avenue South, Ward 3
Staff report by
Nicholas Baker, PLAN4021
This item was continued from the May 02, 2017 Heritage Preservation Commission meeting
The Department of Community Planning and Economic Development recommends that the Heritage Preservation Commission adopt staff findings for the application by Mill Place LP for the property located at 101 3rd Avenue South in the St. Anthony Falls Historic District:
A. Certificate of Appropriateness.
Recommended motion: Approve the certificate of appropriateness to allow a new painted wall sign on a contributing building in the St. Anthony Falls Historic District, subject to the following conditions:
  1. Approval of the final plans by the Department of Community Planning and Economic Development.
  2. The sign will not be given an intentionally ‘distressed’ appearance.
  3. The sign will not be illuminated, and the proposed lighting fixtures will be omitted.
  4. By ordinance, approvals are valid for a period of two years from the date of the decision unless required permits are obtained and the action approved is substantially begun and proceeds in a continuous basis toward completion. Upon written request and for good cause, the planning director may grant up to a one year extension if the request is made in writing no later than June 6, 2019.
  5. By ordinance, all approvals granted in this certificate of appropriateness shall remain in effect as long as all of the conditions and guarantees of such approvals are observed. Failure to comply with such conditions and guarantees shall constitute a violation of this certificate of appropriateness and may result in termination of the approval.
B. Historic Variance.
Recommended motion: Approve the historic variance to allow a new painted wall sign exceeding the maximum size allowed by the zoning code on a contributing building in the St. Anthony Falls Historic District.
 
 
2. 4 Island Avenue West, Ward 3
Staff report by
Nicholas Baker, PLAN4328
The Department of Community Planning and Economic Development recommends that the Heritage Preservation Commission adopt staff findings for the applications by the August Schell Brewing Co. for the property located at 4 Island Avenue West in the St. Anthony Falls Historic District:
A. Certificate of Appropriateness.
Recommended motion: Approve the certificate of appropriateness to allow rehabilitation of and modifications to an existing off-premise sign and sign structure within the St. Anthony Falls Historic District, subject to the following conditions:
  1. Approval of the final plans by the Department of Community Planning and Economic Development.
  2. The proposed security screening will be attached to the existing sign structure using existing bolt holes or clamped-on mounting brackets to avoid drilling new holes into the structure.
  3. The proposed contour LED tubing will be affixed to the sign surface at the same location as and using the existing holes for the historic neon tube supports; care will be taken to avoid the need for introducing any new openings in the surface of the original porcelain-enamel panels.
  4. Proposed tree removal must be completed in accordance with section 551.520 of the Zoning Code. Best management practices shall be utilized to prevent erosion, and vegetation ensuring a “continuous natural cover” shall be restored as soon as feasible following the completion of construction, to maintain the natural appearance of the riverbank in accordance with the Shoreland Overlay District provisions of the Zoning Code and Historic District guidelines, with proposed plantings to be reviewed and approved by staff.
  5. The restoration of the historic color scheme (warm white, green, red, and amber, as outlined above) and historically accurate lighting sequence (including the lighting of each letter and then the word ‘beer’ individually, then flashing, and then restarting the sequence) are considered appropriate and are approved.
  6. The proposed commemorative and recurring color changes are not considered appropriate and are not approved.
  7. By ordinance, approvals are valid for a period of two years from the date of the decision unless required permits are obtained and the action approved is substantially begun and proceeds in a continuous basis toward completion. Upon written request and for good cause, the planning director may grant up to a one year extension if the request is made in writing no later than June 6, 2019.
  8. By ordinance, all approvals granted in this certificate of appropriateness shall remain in effect as long as all of the conditions and guarantees of such approvals are observed. Failure to comply with such conditions and guarantees shall constitute a violation of this Certificate of Appropriateness and may result in termination of the approval.
