5.  Discussion of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation 

1. A property shall be used for its historic purpose or be placed in a new use that requires minimal change to the defining characteristics of the building and its site and environment.

2. The historic character of a property shall be retained and preserved. The removal of historic materials or alteration of features and spaces that characterize a property shall be avoided.

3. Each property shall be recognized as a physical record of its time, place, and use. Changes that create a false sense of historical development, such as adding conjectural features or architectural elements from other buildings, shall not be undertaken.

4. Most properties change over time; those changes that have acquired historic significance in their own right shall be retained and preserved.

5. Distinctive features, finishes, and construction techniques or examples of craftsmanship that characterize a property shall be preserved.

6. Deteriorated historic features shall be repaired rather than replaced. Where the severity of deterioration requires replacement of a distinctive feature, the new feature shall match the old in design, color, texture, and other visual qualities and, where possible, materials. Replacement of missing features shall be substantiated by documentary, physical, or pictorial evidence.

7. Chemical or physical treatments, such as sandblasting, that cause damage to historic materials shall not be used. The surface cleaning of structures, if appropriate, shall be undertaken using the gentlest means possible.

8. Significant archeological resources affected by a project shall be protected and preserved. If such resources must be disturbed, mitigation measures shall be undertaken.

9. New additions, exterior alterations, or related new construction shall not destroy historic materials that characterize the property. The new work shall be differentiated from the old and shall be compatible with the massing, size, scale, and architectural features to protect the historic integrity of the property and its environment.

10. New additions and adjacent or related new construction shall be undertaken in such a manner that if removed in the future, the essential form and integrity of the historic property and its environment would be unimpaired.

Wadsworth House

The Commission has obtained an appraisal for the property.  The issue before the Committee is the formulation of a recommendation regarding the prospective purchase of the property by the HLC.

Records show that South State Bank has foreclosed on the property and is now the owner.  A private party is pursuing purchase of the property.  As a general rule, the Commission does not pursue purchase of a property when it will be preserved by another buyer.

6. Update on Charles E. Barnhardt House, 3217 Maymont Place, Charlotte

Charles E. Barnhardt House

The property is being actively marketed.  There is no viable offer on the table.  

The Commission is required by contract to make improvements to the house, including repainting the exterior, glazing broken windows, demolishing the carport, and putting a roof on the house.  Staff has requested that recommendations for a roof be put before the HLC at its May 14th meeting.

Ingleside

Ingleside is the best ante-bellum Italianate style structure in Mecklenburg County.  The owner has submitted a deed in lieu of foreclosure to Sun Trust Bank.  The Historic Landmarks Commission purchased Ingleside over twenty years ago, placed preservation covenants in the deed, and sold Ingleside.  Therefore, the Commission has a first right of refusal to purchase Ingleside.  Staff believes that the Commission should approach Sun Trust Bank about the prospect of purchasing Ingleside.  If the property is placed under contract, closing would be dependent upon the County’s standard due diligence procedures.
