Title

Resolution - A Resolution Approving a Preservation Agreement between the City of Mansfield and Manuel and Elva Hernandez, owners of 301 W. Broad St., for a Historic Mansfield Preservation Grant Not to Exceed $4,400.00 (HLC#19-009)

 

Requested Action

To consider approval of the Preservation Grant.

 

Recommendation

Staff recommends approval of a Historic Mansfield Preservation Grant.

 

At their June 13, 2019, meeting, the Historic Landmark Commission recommended approval of the replacement of six non-compatible windows on the Gaulden-Baskin House using a grant from the 2018-2019 grant cycle and completing the project with funds from the 2019-2020 grant cycle by a vote of 6 to 0.

 

Description/History

The City Council authorized a $10,000.00 preservation grant to replace the windows at the historic Gaulden-Baskin House at 301 W. Broad Street from the 2018-2019 grant cycle.  Leeds Clark, Inc., the contractor, was able to replace five of the six non-compatible windows for $9,873.80, much less than the initial estimate.

The property owners are seeking a preservation grant not to exceed $4,400.00 for the replacement of the remaining non-compatible arched window and associated work on the facade facing South 2nd Avenue.  This window is situated in a box attached to the side of the house.  The box will need to be reconstructed to accommodate the new window. The owners have agreed to replace the existing window with a historically appropriate wood window to match the two large windows on the left side of the house.

As required by the terms of the preservation grant, the owners received a historic landmark designation on October 28, 2019.
