Heritage Commission Approves Requests

From Staff Reports

All three requests for certificates of appropriateness were approved by the Ste. Genevieve Heritage Commission on Oct. 19.

First, Jason Stackle received permission to rehabilitate and renovate the structure, including installation of vinyl windows, steel doors, vinyl porch railing with metal balusters, wooden porch flooring and porch ceiling at 135 N. 3rd Street.

Member Martha Patterson made a motion to approve the application as presented, but it died due to the lack of a second. After further Patterson moved to approve the application with the amendment that the front door be wooden and the porch railing be wooden. It passed 3-1-1 with member Frank Myers Myers voting against it.

An application was also approved to install four-foot chain link fence in the rear yard at 415 LaHaye Street. 

The applicant was not present to discuss the application but the commission considered and discussed the materials that the applicant submitted. 

David Bova, community development administrator, answered some questions on the project. It passed 4-0, with one absent.

Caly Rottler then requested a certificate to nstall an exposed fastener metal roof on the structure at 198 LaHaye Street. It also passed unanimously.
