10/15/09 Reader Submitted Comments: Historic District Commission

Wow! What a surprise the P & Z and the Historic Commission are working together.

After the stealth attack on Sachem Road to make it a historic district.

It does not surprise me at all.

10/13/09 HDC Is Stealing ARC's Cookies With P&Z's Blessing?

The Greenwich Monitor says:

It appears that the The Historic District Commission (HDC) is on a stealth mission to reduce the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) to near irrelevance.

The ARC composed of architects has been reduced to the mere approval of signs, lighting and air conditioners on Greenwich Avenue.

The HDC is subtlety trying to move Greenwich Avenue from being merely registered on the National Registry to a full blown Historic District

The HDC's standard of approval is to replicate the Avenue of old.

The ARC feels that the Avenue is a living organism of continual change.

The ARC uses their innate skill as professionals to control the scale, mass and style of the Avenue so that it can change, yielding place to new, while preserving the ambiance of the Avenue.

The HDC is trying to roll back the fenestration's to some unknown historical period, not clear to the land owner or their architects.

Arbitrary and capricious is HDC's mystery to approval.

The HDC, comprised of armature historians and a few architects, would replace their gut feelings for the practiced skill of the more illustrious professionals of the ARC.

Whose in charge?
The Greenwich Monitor's solution will be offered after the people of Greenwich have made comments.
