HRMC Directs Staff to Prepare Documents Recommending the Howard-Abbott House Be Designated a Davis Landmark (111)

Fifth in a series.

By a vote of 6-0-1 on Monday, March 18, the HRMC directed City staff to prepare formal papers designating the Howard-Abbott House at 445 Russell a Davis Landmark.

According to a March 19th letter reporting this HRMC action (reproduced as part of this post), the HRMC hearing on this proposal will be held on Monday, April 15th.

In addition, the City has released what it describes as “the final HRA inventory and evaluation report on 445 Russell,” which “included comments from the HRMC on 3/18/13.”

This “final” version is some 20 pages longer than the first version and includes, mainly, an array of relevant photographs.
