6. Proposed Additions to the Rules of Procedure
Before July 1, 1978, ordinances adopted in Mecklenburg County for the designation of local historic landmarks included in the designation both the interiors and exteriors of the buildings, unless the ordinance stated that the designation was for only the exterior of a building. After July 1, 1978, only the exterior of a building is included in the designation unless an ordinance explicitly states that the interior is included. The HLC should consider adopting a rule that unless explicitly stated otherwise, the interior of a building is included in the designation for all properties designated before July 1, 1978.
The HLC should consider adopting a policy to allow for design review items where Staff does not find conflict with the STANDARDS to be placed on a consent agenda.
If the HLC adopts a policy to allow for design review items to be placed on a consent agenda, any project approved for a Certificate of Appropriateness by a historic preservation commission for a local historic district can be placed on a consent agenda.
If the HLC adopts a policy to allow for design review items to be placed on a consent agenda, any project approved for state or federal tax credits by the State Historic Preservation Office can be placed on a consent agenda.
