RESOLUTION DESIGNATING LANDMARK SITE STATUS FOR SIXTH AND SEVENTH STREETS, BETWEEN IRVING PLACE AND WALLACE AVENUE, IRVING PLACE AND CLOVER STREET BETWEEN IRVING PLACE AND EIGHTH STREET.
WHEREAS, the heritage preservation commission was petitioned by residents of Sixth and Seventh Streets to remove them from this year's residential street improvement program; and
WHEREAS, the streets included in this landmark site are constructed of unique historic concrete/granitoid material built in 1907; and
WHEREAS, these streets are recognized both locally, regionally, statewide and nationally to be of significant historic value having been patented and constructed during the transition era of transportation between horse carriages and the emergence of the automobile; and
WHEREAS, while there were more of these streets constructed in the area initially, these are the only streets remaining with their original surfaces exposed; and
WHEREAS, the heritage preservation commission adopted a resolution of support at their May 17, 2000, meeting and recommends designation to this landmark site after public testimony from property owners abutting these streets with favorable support for such designation.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Sixth and Seventh Streets between Irving Place and Wallace Avenue and Irving Place and Clover Street between Irving Place and Eighth Street be designated as a landmark site.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that
all further construction and repair in this district be conducted according
to the preservation plan prepared for this site.
