The owner has received approval for the design of houses to be built on the pasture at the Hennigan Place.  A pre-Civil War structure, the Hennigan Place was moved to this site in the 1970s and restored.  The owner is requesting that the pasture be removed from the historic landmark designation.  The owner states that he will require that the buyers place preservation covenants on the new houses.  The owner has also committed to placing deed covenants on the historic house.  

Staff recommends that before any decision is made that the owner be required to do the following:

Secure legal services to prepare the language of the proposed deed covenants, including the covenant for the historic house, and have the HLC attorney review the language and report to the Survey Committee.
