Historical Commission Meeting date: Thursday June 11, 2015, Academy, second floor.
Under new business the HC has been asked by Gregory Farmer, Historic Preservation Consultant to this project, to comment on the conversion of Cameron House from 44 existing "assisted living" senior units to 38 new "independent living" senior apartments within the existing building. I have noted two areas for comment (you may have others) that are of concern, (1) replacements windows are aluminum clad....MHC prefers keeping and upgrading existing windows and, if replacement takes place, the aluminum cladding could raise questions.
The action requested is review and approval: Determination of "no adverse effect" on historic resources. The Cameron House in on the Nat'l Register of Historic Places.
(2) This second item, affordability, is important but I am not sure that this issue is within our purview.
