DESIGN GUIDELINES
Kingman Park Historic District Design Guidelines.
              The Board provided some editorial comments and voted to adopt the guidelines.  Vote:  8-0.

BLOOMINGDALE HISTORIC DISTRICT
1634 North Capitol Street NW, HPA 18-556, concept/new construction.
The Board found the general height and mass to be compatible for this site in the Bloomingdale Historic District, but that some type of setback or relief was needed on the south adjacent to the firehouse.  The Board made comments that the color and scale of fenestration should be reconsidered, and that the project should be presented to the ANC and community prior to coming back for further review. Vote:  8-0.

CLEVELAND PARK HISTORIC DISTRICT
3300 Newark Street NW, HPA 18-534, concept/rear addition and new windows.
The Board heard testimony from the applicant, ANC, ARC and community members.  As the plans had been modified in response to the HPO report, the Board deferred taking action to allow the ANC to review and comment on the modifications.  The case will be rescheduled for consideration at the November 15 or 29 meeting.      
John Eaton Elementary School, 3301 Lowell Street NW, HPA 18-607, preliminary review/DC Public School’s feasibility study for expansion.
                The Board members thanked DCPS for a thorough presentation on the alternatives explored in the feasibility study and concurred that Scheme B, which could result in partial or complete removal of the 1930s wing, should continue to be considered and developed.  As the presentation was informational only, the Board did not take a vote.  

MOUNT PLEASANT HISTORIC DISTRICT
3143 19th Street NW, HPA 18-605, concept/rooftop and rear side-court additions. 
The Board approved the concept as compatible with the character of the historic district and consistent with the purposes of the preservation law, with the conditions that: (A) the third-floor addition and its appurtenances not be visible from 19th Street; (B) the roof of the third-floor addition be lowered at rear to allow for proper drainage; (C) the third-floor addition have low side parapets; (D) the floor framing be retained within the main block of the house; (E) the front door and windows be retained and repaired as necessary; and (F) there be no alley vehicular gate or door with prominent housing or tracks.   Vote 6-0.

(This case was deferred at the request of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission)

ANACOSTIA HISTORIC DISTRICT
1226 Pleasant Street SE, HPA 18-615, concept/two-story accessory dwelling. 
The Board heard testimony from the applicant, ANC, and HAPS. As the plans for the accessory dwelling did not meet design standards for the Anacostia historic district, the Board did not take a vote but asked that the project return with a redesigned accessory dwelling and no roof deck on the primary house. 

KALORAMA TRIANGLE HISTORIC DISTRICT
2343 Ashmead Place NW, HPA 18-535, concept/one-story rear addition.
The Board approved the concept as designed as consistent with the preservation act. The Board considered and gave great weight to the resolution of the ANC, but pointed out that the considerations and concerns that it raised regarding the impact of the four-story project next door were quite different than for this much smaller one-story addition.  Vote:  6-0.  

TAKOMA PARK HISTORIC DISTRICT
6825 Piney Branch Road NW, HPA 18-604, concept/second-story side addition.
(This case was deferred on October 3)
