This document and others related to the July 26 and August 2 HPRB Meeting are accessible on the website at: https://planning.dc.gov/node/1176060
MONTHLY PUBLIC NOTICE
Issued by email on July 11, 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).
PROPOSED BLOOMINGDALE HISTORIC DISTRICT
A nomination to designation a Bloomingdale Historic District will be considered by the HPRB at the July 26, 2018 meeting. Information on the nomination, proposed boundaries, draft design guidelines, and implications for property owners is available at (https://planning.dc.gov/page/proposed-bloomingdale-historic-district ).
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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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).
