PMN 2011: Addressing Common Design Review Issues

Posted byJoe Hoover on 13 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: Podcasts, Preserve MN 2011

Some design issues show up over and over again, but that doesn’t mean the reviews get any easier.
One recurring issue is determining if changes to a commercial building have acquired significance and if so, how they should be preserved. Other common questions: What should replacement windows look like? When is it appropriate to use a substitute material and what should it be? How do you fit an ADA ramp on a typical Main Street building? What makes a good awning, or suitable signage? This mobile session uses downtown Faribault as a lab to discuss some common design quandaries.
Presenters: Audrey Tepper, National Park Service, Washington, D.C.; Natascha Wiener, SHPO senior design reviewer
