3 - Pending stay-of-demolition for 607 Forest Ave - expires April 15, 2009 Bonnell, Juliet From: Hewat> James Sent: Monday, January 05, 2009 3:44 PM To: Ipab Subject: FW: A viewer has a question about your event See attached.

Their question is: 1V1r. Hewat, l sent you a rather extensive e-mail in early December 2008, regarding my concerns about the proposal to demolish the home at 607 Forest Ave, which was the home, for around 50 years, of J. Brownlee and Lois Guyer. I am a bit concerned that it may not have reached you, as I cannot find a copy in my "sent mail". However, I am following up this contact to tell you that I just leaz-ned that the proposal will again be considered on Wednesday 1/7/09, and I feel that the meeting about the proposal maybe coming before the Board too quickly, without the needed consideration time. Since a fi7end had advised me that on December 3, 2008, the board asked for time to consider alternatives to demolition, I am shocked to see anothe r meeting about this proposal only one month later, during which intervening time Christmas and New Year's holidays were taking place. I would ask that the Board follow through with their committrnent to give sufficient consideration to alternatives and not rush into a decision at a time of year when there have been many distractions for Board members and days off for City employees. Phis home has been a part of its neighborhood for about/over 50 years. Should its demolition take place, no proposal has been presented as to future plans for the property; however, it is safe to assume that the property owner will erect a large residence that will resemble many which have been and will be going up in older neighborhoods consisting of predominantly smaller homes, and that it will radically change the character of the 6th & Forest neighborhood. In the interests of this neighborhood and many other older Boulder neighbo rhoods, l ask the Board to give sufficient consideration to demolition alternatives. I would be happy to speak to anyone who has questions for zne about this matter. Thank you, Jacqueline Johnson z Bonnell, Juliet From: Hewat, James Sent: Monday, January 05, 2009 4:49 PM To: Ipab . Subject: FW: Demolition permit for 607 Forest Ave. See attached From: frnelson@aol.com [mailto:frnelson@aol.com] Sent: Monday, January 05, 2009 4:39 PM To: Hewat, Games Subject: Demolition permit for 607 Forest Ave. Dear Landmarks Board Members, Our family listened to the board meeting of Dec. 3, 2008, concerning the demolition of the former Guyer property at 607 Forest Ave. We were pleased that the board voted to take up to 180 days to look at the property more carefully before issuing the permit. We felt comfortable that a thorough study would be made before a decision was made on the property. We were concerned to hear that the house was brought up again on Dec. 30th and Jan. 7th. We are asking the board to standby their word of taking sufficient time to look into options to demolition of the property. We understand that this was done for a property on Dewey Street. We ask for the same consideration on the Forest Street property. We are available to provide you with any additional information that you might need in making your decision.
