"I think that the new advisory board is very appropriate for this community to maintain the historic integrity," said Paul Brooks, village trustee. "I've been seeking regulations for years now and I'm pleased that we finally have local laws governing the work that can be done on properties in the historic district."
The HPC committee members that were appointed at the April 2 village board meeting are: Ted Bartlett (chairman) senior associate Crawford & Sterns, Architects and Preservation Planners, Gene Gissin, professional photographer and owner of the historic Cazenovia Depot, Dan Kuper, owner and manager of the historic Lincklaen House, Betsy Moore, associate professor, interior design at Cazenovia College and Scott Shannon, associate professor, Landscape Architecture SUNY/ ESF.
"We are very fortunate to have such talented and dedicated community members willing to dedicate their time to serve on the Historic Preservation Committee," wrote Mayor Tom Dougherty, in the Mayor's Notebook, on the village web site.
According to Brooks, the committee is not just there to tell you what you can't do; it's there to help you find that replacement window with the appropriate historic character so that you can comply with the new village code.
Questions about the new code can be directed to Laura Herbert Abernathy, village clerk at 655-3041 and/or Bill Carr, village zoning enforcement officer at 440-7371.
