They reported the Board's consensus that no <br /> certificates be issued for homes constructed before 1951 while they complete the re- <br /> evaluation to determine which homes would be considered "contributor" or "non <br /> contributor" to the historic overlay district. <br /> The Council, Board and Staff discussed the work to be done for the re-evaluation, <br /> reasons that a home would be allowed to be demolished (public health issues), the <br /> challenges of managing renovations and additions in the historic district and whether <br /> or not a moratorium was necessary disallowing demolitions of homes built before 1951 <br /> while the re-evaluation of the Plan of Treatment was completed. Staff was directed to <br /> prepare the necessary ordinance for consideration at the Council's next meeting. <br /> Mayor Hovland adjourned the meeting at 6:50 P.M. <br /> Respectfully submitted, <br /> Debra Mangen,City Jerk <br />
