Subject: [HistoricWashington] HPO Monthly Public Notice - April 2018
 

This document and others related to the April 26 and May 3 HPRB Meeting are accessible on the website at:  https://planning.dc.gov/node/1176060 .  A PDF copy with website hyperlinks is also attached to this message.
_________    
GOVERNMENT OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
HISTORIC PRESERVATION REVIEW BOARD
HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE

MONTHLY PUBLIC NOTICE
April 2018
Issued by email on April 10, 2018

PURPOSE OF THIS NOTICE 
This notice is the official monthly announcement by the District of Columbia’s Historic Preservation Office (HPO) of pending matters of public interest.  It includes items related to preservation planning, designation of historic landmarks and historic districts, and project reviews before the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) and U.S. Commission of Fine Arts (CFA). 

KINGMAN PARK HISTORIC DISTRICT UPDATE 
The continuation of the January 25, 2018 hearing on the proposed Kingman Park Historic District (all properties between East Capitol, 19th and M Streets NE and Maryland Avenue NE and the Anacostia River, Case 16-19) will be held on April 26, 2018.  Affected ANCs:  5D, 6A and 7D. 
Draft design guidelines for the proposed historic district have been prepared and are available at (https://planning.dc.gov/node/1314166 ). Comments or questions can be directed to historic.preservation@dc.gov . 

SUSTAINABILITY GUIDELINES FOR HISTORIC PROPERTY 
Draft sustainability guidelines for existing and historic properties have been prepared by the DC Department of Energy Environment (DDOE) in consultation with HPO.  The draft guidelines will be scheduled for consideration by the HPRB at the May 24, 2018 meeting and are available at (https://planning.dc.gov/node/1314201) . Comments or questions are appreciated by May 7, 2018 and can be directed to historic.preservation@dc.gov.  

NOTICE TO ADVISORY NEIGHBORHOOD COMMISSIONS 
HPO and HPRB welcome and encourage Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) participation in the historic preservation review process.  HPRB gives great weight to duly adopted written ANC views on matters of significance to neighborhood planning and development.  

How Affected ANCs Should Use this Notice 
This is an initial notice to ANCs of construction projects recently filed for HPRB review.  Projects are identified by address and ANC area where the address is located.  Upcoming historic designation hearings are also listed, supplementing the separate notice letters mailed to ANCs. 
HPRB regulations are designed to allow ANCs to identify projects they believe are significant to neighborhood planning and development.  ANCs can request project submissions and applicant contact information from the assigned HPO staff person listed on this notice. 
The historic preservation regulations encourage, but do not require, applicants to contact the affected ANC to present their projects and to resolve any public concerns before HPRB review.  If an ANC is interested in a project listed on this notice, but has not yet been contacted by the applicant, the ANC is encouraged to arrange for an ANC review directly with the applicant.  

Longer Notice Period for Cases Undergoing ANC Review  
HPO gives notice according to rules designed to balance the interests of project applicants and ANCs.  If HPO is already aware of ANC interest in a project, the case is listed on two successive monthly notices in order to ensure a minimum notice to the affected ANC of 45 days (or 30 working days, whichever is longer).  This means that when these cases first appear on this notice, they are scheduled for the HPRB meeting at the end of the following month.  
HPO asks affected ANCs for help in identifying any other projects on this notice that they want to review at a public meeting.  Upon notification, HPO will ensure that the affected ANC receives a minimum 45-day notice of those cases.  ANCs may identify an interest in reviewing any or all cases that affect their area.  
For those cases that affected ANCs do not need to consider at a public meeting, HPO will proceed with review for possible consideration at this month’s HPRB meeting.  The shorter notice allows the application to proceed without unnecessary delay to the applicant or burden to the ANC. 

How to Ensure Consideration of ANC Views  
ANCs should first identify those cases on this notice they want to review.  ANCs should feel free to contact the assigned HPO staff person for information about any case.  ANCs should also contact HPO in writing to request an extended notice for those cases the ANC wants to review at a public meeting.  Requests are granted automatically and may be made by email to the assigned staff person or to historic.preservation@dc.gov.   Requests should be made as soon as possible, but no later than two days before the upcoming HPRB meeting.  ANCs do not need to contact HPO about projects that are already scheduled to allow a 45-day review period, or that they have already reviewed. 

How to Submit ANC Comments 
For ANC comments to receive great weight, they must be adopted by ANC vote at a duly noticed public meeting.  ANC comments may be in resolution or letter format, and should be submitted within the 45-day review period.  Comments should relate to HPRB’s area of jurisdiction, state the vote taken, and articulate the basis for the ANC recommendations.  
Any ANC commissioner is welcome to participate in HPRB meetings as an individual, but only the duly adopted official comments of the ANC receive great weight.   

GENERAL AVAILABILITY OF PUBLIC INFORMATION 
The applications listed on this notice and their associated materials are a matter of public record.  Case files are open for public review at the Historic Preservation Office during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm, 1100 4th Street SW, Suite E650 (at Waterfront METRO station).   
For more information, see the HPO and HPRB website at www.preservation.dc.gov . Some application materials are also posted on the website. 

COMMENT SUBMISSION DEADLINES 
Public comments are welcome on HPRB cases, and anyone may participate in an HPRB meeting without signing up in advance.  HPRB prefers to receive copies of written comments before their meeting.  Written comments submitted electronically by the deadlines below will be distributed to the HPRB members before the meeting.  Any comments received after the final deadline will held for the record but not distributed to the HPRB members.

Comments for distribution with case information:             1 pm on April 19

Final deadline for comments to be distributed:                1 pm on April 25 (for April 26 meeting)
                                                                                                                1 pm on May 2 (for May 3 meeting)

NOTICE OF CASES FILED FOR REVIEW 
The following cases have been filed by this month’s application deadline for submission to HPRB.  The agenda of cases for the upcoming HPRB meetings will be drawn from this list. 
Listing on this notice does not guarantee a hearing this month.  Some cases are already scheduled for the following month.  Other cases may be deferred at the request of the affected Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC), for insufficient information, or at the discretion of HPO or HPRB.
