New legislation could affect quality of restoration projects
Senate Bill 639 was introduced on December 8. This bill seeks to alter the standards of quality required for restoration projects.
SECTION 6. 62.23 (7) (em) 2m reads: "In the repair or replacement of a property that is designated as a historic landmark or included within a historic district or neighborhood conservation district under this paragraph, a city shall allow an owner to use materials that an ordinary observer would perceive, when viewed from the centerline of an adjacent highway, as having a substantially similar appearance to the original material."
