SHPO Summary Report – SHPO concurred with the findings from the 11/7/2014 11.1 Reviews. In response to a question from a Commission member regarding the Commission’s finding of No Adverse Effect for 1216 Quincy Street, Kate Nelson responded:


“We looked at the information presented in the application, which said that there were substantial changes to the home during a 1999 remodel, including all new windows and doors; moved or enlarged openings; removed interior hallways; added exterior exits; a large deck added to upper floor; all interiors remodeled and modernized; and significant structural work.  All of that work, which apparently didn’t trigger the 11.1 review process, already damaged the integrity of the home.  With that as our starting point, we determined that the replacement of existing siding of various styles and sizes with new fiber cement siding would not have an adverse effect, given the home’s compromised integrity to start with.


As you know, the Standards must be applied on a case-by-case basis since no two buildings or projects are the same.  In this case, we determined that the previous changes had compromised the integrity of the building to the point that further changes to the siding would not adversely affect the house or the district as a whole.”
