Amending Sections 88-580, Historic Designations and 88-585, Certificates of Appropriateness; and adding a new Section 88-810-045, Administrative Official, to clarify the procedure for historic designations. (254-S-286)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Brad Wolf, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. It has been determined by staff that certain clarifications should be made to the text of Sections 88-580 Historic Designations, 88-585 Certificates of Appropriateness, and that a definition should be added to 88-810. 1) For an application for historic designation that is denied and subsequently appealed, current text does not specify who would hear the appeal to the decision of the historic preservation commission. 2) Adds that all applications for historic designation, regardless of the decision of the Historic Preservation Commission, must be forwarded to the City Plan Commission and City Council for review. Under current practice, designations that are not recommended for approval by the Historic Preservation Commission are not subsequently forwarded to CPC and Council. Similarly, proposed text states that if a request for rehearing is granted, the recommendation of the Historic Preservation Commission after the rehearing, regardless of the recommendation, must be forwarded to the City Plan Commission and Council for review. 3) Definition of “Administrative Official” added. 4) Consistent with other procedures, text revised to specify that mailed notice must be sent at least 13 days before the scheduled hearing. After testimony from representatives of Historic Preservation Commission and Historic Kansas City, the City Plan Commission agreed to delete proposed section 88-585-05-F. 3. (as proposed by Councilpersons Sharp and Glover) as follows (Note that this text is not included within the committee substitute ordinance): 3. Granting a certificate of economic hardship by city council. The city council may grant a certificate of economic hardship denied by the historic preservation commission by passage of an ordinance declaring that the proposed work is necessary for the public health, welfare, or safety.

PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (4/30/2014)"
Councilman Wagner gave the staff report on the Ordinance. Also presenting on the Ordinance was Kimiko Gilmore, Assistant City Manager.

In Ordinance No. 130983, Council established the Urban Agricultural Zone Advisory Commission to make recommendations to the Council for standards to guide implementation of the UAZ Act and ensure that the desired outcomes are attained. This ordinance contains the Advisory Commission's recommendations.
