AN ORDINANCE DESIGNATING THE KILLORIN RESIDENCE AS A DULUTH HERITAGE PRESERVATION LANDMARK.

BY PRESIDENT GILBERT:

The city of Duluth does ordain:

Section 1. That the city of Duluth does designate, pursuant to Chapter 28A of the Duluth City Code, 1959, as amended, the Killorin residence as a Duluth heritage preservation landmark; said landmark is described in Public Document No. ____________ on file with the city clerk and is described as follows:

Lots 1-4, portions of Lots 5, 6 and 12 and all of Lots 13-16, and adjacent vacated alley, Block 28, Harrisons Division of Duluth.
Section 2. That this ordinance shall take effect and be in force 30 days from and after its passage and publication.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This ordinance designates the Killorin residence as a Duluth heritage preservation landmark.  At its June 11, 1997, meeting, the Duluth heritage preservation commission reviewed the architectural and historical background of the Killorin residence to determine its suitability to be designated a Duluth heritage preservation landmark.  A public hearing was advertised ten days in advance and held at this meeting.  Dolly and Bill Schnell, the current owners of the property sent a letter expressing their support of the designation.

Based upon the historic and architectural merit of the property, the HPC recommended that the Killorin residence be designated a Duluth heritage preservation landmark.  The Minnesota historical society concurred with this recommendation in its official comment on the nomination.
