No two homes in our neighborhood are the same. Our ordinance language does not offer specific language that allows original or re-ordinance existing structural and architectural features to be fully repaired or replaced with equal or like materials.
Original homes may not be able to keep, replace, or fully repairs original structural and architectural features.
Include a provision in the ordinance where: As long there is " documented assurance" for structural and architectural features (if it existed originally or at the time of the ordinance), it can be fully repaired or replaced with equal feature or like materials. This will cover columns, eaves, stairs, decorative items, windows, etc.
Allow original homes to fully repair, replace original features.
