GENERAL BUSINESS


Developer check-list:

  • Review of draft presented to the EHCA Board

  • Board feedback / Should we have different standards depending on size of the project?

  • Carl feedback / Can we require developers to strip buildings down to original siding and rebuild according to original features revealed? How do we hold them accountable?

  • Colleen feedback / We should provide some context in terms of our / EHCA's goals & priorities

  • Let’s get an updated version of checklist to Board for their next meeting so we can finalize & move forward

EHCA developer proposals:

  • What happens if we vote down a project? / How much do our votes actually make a difference

  • When, if ever, should we go further? (Apply for landmark status, etc.)We need a developer database & more info in advance of meetings

  • We need a system for holding developers accountable

(On a slight tangent but definitely related, if you haven't checked out Lydia Edward's proposed overhaul of the ZBA and Michelle Wu's plan to abolish the BPDA, they're both very interesting)


FUTURE BUSINESS

  • Plan for CPA funds request in spring 2020
