5.      MAJOR REVIEW ITEMS

 
5.1    Planning Application 2017-00000146/HDR-ZC (10191 West River Street Remodel); Owner: Robert Conklin; Agent: Tina Ho (10191 West River Street; APN 019-130-005-000). Laura Dabe, Assistant Planner.

The applicant has requested Zoning Clearance approval to remodel an existing single-family residence to add a secondary residential unit, and is requesting Historic Design Review for proposed exterior modifications to a Category B (“Contributory”) historic building.

Staff Recommendation: Staff supports the rehabilitation of this Category B (“Contributory”) historic resource and supports the addition of secondary residential unit within the existing residence. Overall staff finds that the proposed exterior modifications are appropriate for the rehabilitation project, but requests that the Commission discuss the proposed materials and additions identified in this staff report and provide feedback on whether the proposed modifications are appropriate for a Category B building in the River Character Area. Staff also recommends a requirement that a detailed rehabilitation plan be prepared for review and approval by the Community Development Director prior to issuance of building permits. This plan will ensure that all rehabilitation work is completed consistent with the project approval and with the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.

5.2    Planning Application 2018-00000109/HDR-ZC (Benna Multifamily Project); Applicant/Owner: JB Benna (10187 West River Street; APN 019-130-051-000). Laura Dabe, Assistant Planner.

The applicant has applied for Zoning Clearance approval to convert an existing single-family residence into three multifamily dwelling units, and is requesting Historic Design Review for proposed exterior modifications to a Category A (“Essential”) historic building.

Staff Recommendation: Staff supports the rehabilitation of this Category A (“Essential”) historic resource. In staff’s opinion, the conversion of the structure from a single-family residence to a multifamily residential building is an appropriate adaptive reuse of the property, allowing the property to evolve and continue to provide housing opportunities in Downtown Truckee. Overall staff finds that the proposed exterior modifications are appropriate for the rehabilitation project, but requests that the Commission discuss the specific items identified in this staff report, including siding, roofing, windows and exterior lighting, and provide feedback on whether the proposed modifications are appropriate for a Category A building in the River Character Area. Staff also recommends that a detailed rehabilitation plan be prepared for review and approval by the Community Development Director prior to issuance of building permits. This plan will ensure that all rehabilitation work is completed consistent with the project approval and with the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.

6.      INFORMATION ITEMS – None.
