LHD-2019-0031 – Discussion 607 Oakland Avenue (Smoot-Terrace Park Historic District) Council District 9 Proposal: Remove brick cladding, restore and repair original wood cladding, add a window opening on the front wall, raise the house 2 feet, extend an uncovered patio across the right side of the building, shift a window opening forward on the south (secondary) wall, and construct an attached carport. Applicant: Kefetew S. Selassie City Staff: Cara Bertron, Historic Preservation Office, 974-1446 Committee Recommendation: In July 2019, the committee supported extending the patio wall and strongly advised against adding a new front window opening. Staff Recommendation: 1) Approve the plans, with the exception of the front porch extension and the new window opening on the front wall. 2) Consider the proposed raising of the house by 2’. 3) Allow staff to administratively approve the previously proposed construction of an uncovered patio with low brick walls if the applicant revises the currently proposed plans.
