RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Open the public hearing.

Receive citizen input.

Close the public hearing.

William Wilson, Flagstaff resident

 

John Regner, Flagstaff resident

 

Eric Whiteman, Flagstaff resident

 

Paul Turner, Flagstaff resident (statement read by Councilmember Haughey)

 

Glenn Rink, Flagstaff resident

Those opposed to the proposed historic designation cited the following arguments:

 

 

Oversight committees bog down remodeling timelines and increase architect fees.

 

Little compromise has been shown to those opposing the measure.

 

The collecting and counting of votes was not handled by an unbiased party.

 

Hard work on the part of the organizers doesn’t guarantee it is in the best interest of the community, or that it is fair minded.

 

It will limit building size and create a hardship for the property owner, while not necessarily accomplishing historic preservation.

 

Private property rights guaranteed by Proposition 202 and the United States Constitution are being infringed upon.

 

The designation will hinder affordable housing in the downtown area.

 

It is not in line with the Flagstaff Regional Land Use and Transportation Plan, the Flagstaff Land Development Code, and supersedes all City laws that conflict with it.

 

Additional restrictions on development will cause more apartments and townhomes to be built, which are more objectionable than apartments over garages.

 

In favor of the historic designation were:

 

 

Connie Kim, Flagstaff resident

 

Duffie Westheimer, Flagstaff resident

 

Ellen Ryan, Flagstaff resident

 

David Ryan, Flagstaff resident

 

Charlie Silver, Flagstaff resident

 

Roabie Johnson, Flagstaff resident

 

Dean Shaddy, Flagstaff resident

 

Marilyn Anderson, Flagstaff resident

 

The following reasons were cited as reasons to approve the historic designation:

 

 

Current building practices are changing the neighborhood’s character and creating a slum.

 

Supporters of the overlay agreed to compromises on every draft of the proposal, particularly regarding building height restrictions.

 

The neighborhood is a 100 years old, is a historic resource, and deserves the protection of a historic designation.

 

The inclusive two-year process included door-to-door contacts, a webpage, phone calls, and over 20 steering or subcommittee meetings.

 

Over 80% of those responding to the petition support the measure.

 

Vice-Mayor Overton moved to close the public hearing, seconded by Councilmember Haughey.  The motion passed on unanimous vote.

Adopt Resolution No. 2007-36.

 

Councilmember Cooper moved to read Resolution No. 2007-36 by title only, seconded by Councilmember Kelty.

 

Councilmembers in opposition to establishing the overlay felt that: (1) in light of recent legislation, the historic designation could be a liability to the community; (2) the zoning change impacts the entire community; and (3) the overlay restricts homeowners from making changes that were an option when buying their property.

 

Councilmembers in favor of the overlay noted that: (1) the community will be better served with the historic designation; (2) the law supports its creation; (3) many compromises were achieved; and (4) preserving the charter of this neighborhood will help to retain the character, high quality of life and charm of Flagstaff.
