Discussion for a May 2022 Workshop
Chairman Kiesel asked the Historic Preservation Board members for their input on if they were interested in changing the annual workshop from October to May. All of the Historic Preservation Board members agreed that May would be a good month to have the annual workshop to coincide with National Historic Preservation month.
Discussion took place amongst the Historic Preservation Board members and Mr. Ford regarding potential topics for a workshop in May 2022. The Historic Preservation Board members were interested in having a workshop to get property owners interested in local historic designations. The Historic Preservation Board members said the Carter House is a great example of a local designation and an adaptive reuse.
Vice Chairman Petyk asked Mr. Ford for an update on the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) that Terrie Franklin is working on for the City of Titusville. Mr. Ford said he will get an update from Ms. Franklin and e-mail the Historic Preservation Board members with the update.
Mr. Ford informed the Historic Preservation Board members that the city should hear back regarding the full history preservation fund grant by March 2022.
Mr. Ford said he will reach out to Kirk Davis regarding coming to a Historic Preservation Board meeting to give a presentation regarding the cemetery located around De Leon and Oakridge.
Member Jonas suggested that promoting what the Historic Preservation Board has accomplished should be promoted at all future workshops.
Rachel Muller the Sustainability Planner with the City of Titusville came to give a presentation regarding Titusville’s Sustainability Action Plan that is currently being promoted and worked on. Ms. Muller answered questions from the Historic Preservation Board members.
Mr. Ford went over the staff reports provided in the agenda.
Mr. Ford said that the canopy has been removed from the North Brevard Historical Society at 301 S. Washington Avenue because it was falling apart. Mr. Ford said they are currently working on a submission to the city to see if the new canopy meets the downtown requirements. Mr. Ford said this could potentially come before the Historic Preservation Board for a special certificate of appropriateness if the city feels it may not meet the downtown standards and should be reviewed.
Mr. Ford said that the Historic Preservation Board members asked for the deadline submission dates for getting articles into the Titusville Talking Points. Mr. Ford said the publishing dates are January 1st, April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st. Mr. Ford said that submissions are required 15 days prior to those dates.
Mr. Ford informed the Historic Preservation Board that the Certified Local Government will be doing their annual audit in January 2022 on the City of Titusville’s Historic Preservation Board to ensure the city is meeting its requirements. Mr. Ford said he has been working on the annual report that will be submitted. The Historic Preservation Board requested Mr. Ford to send a copy of the report to all of the Historic Preservation Board members.
