NATIONAL REGISTER NOMINATION

Brandon Toponce, Assistant Planner, reported the National Register Nomination for the Smoot Home located at 1697 North Main will cost $2,000.00, which will be conducted by Korral Broschinsky. Monte Roberts and Brian Plummer will try to meet with the owner, Melvin Stephens, to see if he is interested in having his home on the National Register. Mr. Toponce also sent a letter to the Thomas Family, who resides in the historic home located at 16 South 200 East, informing them their home has been selected for an Intensive Level Survey to be conducted by Angie Abram.

DISCUSSION ON KIOSKS

The Commission discussed the possibility of purchasing a kiosk that would feature historic homes within the Deuel Creek Historic District. The Commission viewed pictures of kiosks that are made of recycled rubber. It is of higher quality than other kiosks, and would hopefully be able to withstand east winds.

OVERVIEW OF THE UTAH PRESERVATION CONFERENCE ON MARCH 13, 2015

The Utah Preservation Conference will be held on Friday, March 13th in Salt Lake City at the Fort Douglas Officer’s Club.  Malinda Mitchell, Vivian Talbot, Brandon Toponce, Jeanne Randall, and Brian Plummer are planning to attend the conference.

DISCUSS HISTORIC HOME TOUR TO BE HELD ON JUNE 6, 2015

Brandon Toponce, Assistant Planner, reported staff mailed 74 letters to selected historic sites to see who would like to volunteer their home for the tour.  Richard Allred, Andy Bavelus, and Chelta Brown have volunteered their homes. Mr. Toponce will contact the Stevenson family (Nathan Porter Home), and Royce Allen will try to contact Melvin Stephens (Smoot Dairy home)    to see if they would like to have their homes on the tour. Vivian Talbot will contact Michell Powers to see if she will allow their home on the tour. The DUP Museum and The Thomas Whitaker Museum will not be part of the tour, but will hopefully be open for those wishing to tour it. Jeanne Randall will ask permission from the DUP to see if the cabin can be open that day.

Designated signs for each home on the tour will be made, and booties to wear over shoes will be available at each home.  Each homeowner will be given a thank you letter and a gift of appreciation. Advertising will be done in the Davis Clipper, the City Newsletter, the Landmarks Commission Timeline, and with the Centennial Committee.

Hannah Klein, City Youth Council Liaison, said she believes not many members of the City Youth Council will be able to help with Home Tour, as the tour is held the day after school ends, and there are many activities held during this week that the students are involved in at school.

DISCUSSION ON THE DEUEL CREEK DISTRICT PROPOSAL AND PREPARATION FOR THE OPEN HOUSE

Brandon Toponce, Assistant Planner, reported staff felt it would be best to make an overlying zone for the Deuel Creek Historic District. Three definitions have been given for specific types of properties. They are: Historic Landmarks Register, contributing and non-contributing. Every person that submits a building permit for exterior construction or new construction within the district area will be given a list of standards and incentives in order to choose if they would like to participate.

At 7:55 p.m., Malinda Mitchell was excused from the meeting.

The Deuel Creek District Open House is scheduled for Thursday, March 26th at 7:00 p.m.  The Commission will plan to meet prior to the meeting at 6:00 p.m.

OTHER

The app from the Utah Heritage Foundation for the Historic District of Centerville is now available.

The next Landmarks Commission meeting will be held on Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 6:00 p.m., in the Administrative Conference Room at City Hall prior to the Deuel Creek District Open House at 7:00 p.m.
