Consider Certificate of Appropriateness – 60 Public Square
Ann Ehler of Central Congregational Church provided information regarding the proposed revitalization project. The Church as 75 stained glass windows, 25 of which are dedicated. The company that will do the work is Jacksonville Stained Glass and they are accredited by the American Stained Glass Association. This company inspected the stained glass at the Church and have recommended the 3 Hitchcock windows (facing north toward the square) be the first priority for revitalization. The project is expected to take 3 to 6 months. Existing plexi-glass on the exterior will be removed, the existing wood framing of the stained glass window will be stabilized, a new extrusion frame will be installed and then the stained glass will be repaired.
Commission members had a number of questions, which included clarifying what the term dutchman means as it could have different meanings regarding the extent of the repair of the wood frame windows, how the extrusion windows will be anchored into the building, if the stone has been inspected for necessary repairs or if it can accept the proposed anchors, how the caulk joints will be done, etc. It was determined these questions will be brought back to the contractor to see if they can either supply the answers or maybe come to the next Commission meeting.
Member Woolsey made a motion to table this item to the May 1st meeting, seconded by Member Reynolds.
