Durham Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) will hold a public hearing at 8:30
am on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 about a proposed new development on property adjacent to
the historic landmark known as Greystone. The MHNA board of directors urges you to learn more about this proposal and
attend the hearing if you can. We understand many of you cannot attend, so we
hope to gather your input and present it to the HPC. Let's have a meeting at
which we can discuss it in person:
proposal involves new construction of three large apartment buildings comprising
140 to 150 apartments plus surface parking. The buildings are to be between 3
and 5 stories tall. All the information you need to form your own opinion about
this proposal is contained in the application for a Certificate of
Appropriateness (COA), which is available online in .PDF file located here (it's a large 31MB file).
application (which is the subject of the hearing) is 55 pages long. We recommend
you focus on section D, "Review Criteria and Staff Analysis," on pages 4 through
13. See also the plans, starting about page 24. Once you have reviewed the
application, please send your comments to MHNA as
soon as possible and/or attend the neighborhood meeting on Sunday.
The HPC hearing is in the Committee Room, Durham City Hall, on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 starting at 8:30am. Greystone Apts. is the third item on the HPC agenda. Again, please attend if you can.
