5C - Landmark Alteration Certificate for 900 Baseline Rd. (HIS2009-00009) MEMORANDUM August 5111, 2009 TO: Landmarks Board FROM: Susan Richstone, Long Range Planning Manager Chris Meschuk, Historic Preservation Planner James Hewat, Historic Preservation Planner SUBJECT: Public hearing and consideration of a Landmark Alteration. Certificate to construct a universally accessible concrete path at the east side of Ranger Cottage property at 900 Baseline Road in the Chautauqua Park Historic District, per section 9- 1148 of the BRC. (HIS2009-00009). STATISTICS: 1. Site: 900 Baseline Road 2. Historic District: Chautauqua 3. Zoning: RL-1 (Residential Low-1) 4. Applicant: City of Boulder, Open Space & Mountain Parks (OSMP). 5. Request: Construction of universally accessible concrete path at east side of property. Staff Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Landmarks Board adopt the following motion: The Landmarks Board approves the proposal for the construction of a universally accessible concrete path at the east side of the Ranger Cottage property at 900 Baseline Road in the Chautauqua Historic District in that it generally meets the standards in Chapter 9-11-18 B.R.C. 1981, and is generally consistent with the Chautauqua Park Historic District Design Guidelines subject to the conditions below, and adopts this memorandum as findings of the board. CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL 1. The applicant shall be responsible for ensuring that the development shall be constructed in compliance with all approved plans on file in the City of Boulder Planning Department, except as modified by these conditions of approval. This recommendation is based upon staff's opinion that with the conditions listed above, the proposed construction will be generally consistent with the conditions as specified in Section 9-11-18(a)&(b)(1-4) S.R.C., and the General Design Guidelines. Summary: ■ The Ranger Cottage at Chautauqua is of relatively recent construction and considered to be a non-contributing resource to the historic district. ■ In January of 2009, it was discovered that construction of the path was proceeding by Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) without a landmark alteration certificate. ■ On January 29, 2009, the request to keep the concrete path was reviewed by the Landmarks design review committee (Ldre). The Ldre requested that alternatives more in keeping with the Chautauqua Historic District Design Guidelines be explored including capping the concrete path with flagstone. The Ldre considered that if OSMP wanted to keep the concrete path, the request would need to be reviewed by the Landmarks Board. ■ On May 20, 2009, a plan to cap the flagstone was presented and the Ldre issued a landmark alteration certificate, finding that the proposal was consistent with the design guidelines and the historic preservation ordinance. ■ OSMP is now requesting the full Landmarks Board consider the concrete path without flagstone capping. ■ Staff considers the concrete path as constructed to be consistent with Section 9-11-18(a)&(b)(14) of the Boulder Revised Code. a ~ (~NY~',. 1 ~JCJ t 'frr1 1. vltl }y 17 ~ nr~^w1L~• l ewe' / - ii iii .c • ~~,rfl. .•}~yl rt "j . c y r -r t r ~ ati air ` `ice t ti Ali M #y if ~ye firer ~1ii,, } •d r~ 'f if .1 Figure T. Concrete path at east side of Chautauqua ranger Cottage Background: In January of 2009, the Open Space and Mountain Parks Department installed a universally accessible concrete path linking Kinnickinnick Drive with the non- contributing Ranger Cottage, which is owned by Open Space & Mountain Parks Department A landmark alteration certificate was not applied for prior to the work commencing on this project. In May of 2009, the Ldre issued OSMP a landmark alteration certificate to cap the walk-way with flagstone. This approval was made after considerable discussion at the Ldre as to whether concrete was an appropriate material for the path. It was decided that the full Landmarks Board would need to review the path if OSMP decided not to cap the walk-way with flagstone, Request: OSMP has decided not to cap the path with flagstone and is requesting that a landmark alteration certificate be issued for the existing concrete walk-way. Five feet wide, approximately 55 feet long, and sloping gradually from Kinnickinnick Road to a disabled ramp on the east side of the Ranger Cottage, the path provides universal accessibility from the road into the house. A large sandstone slab at the east end of the path provides access over the drainage ditch on the west side of Kirmicki-nnick Road (see figure 2). ! ;7,. I i Figure 2. Site plan showing accessible path at southeast corner of property Board's Decision: The Historic Preservation Ordinance specifies that a Landmark Alteration Permit may not be approved by the Board or City Council unless it meets the conditions specified in Section 9-11-18 B.R.C. Specifically: (a) The landmarks board and the city council shall not approve an application for a landmark alteration certificate unless each such agency finds that the proposed work is consistent with the purposes of this chapter. (b) Neither the landmarks board nor the city council shall approve a landmark alteration certificate unless it meets the following conditions: (1) The proposed work preserves, enhances, or restores and does not damage or destroy the exterior architectural features of the landmark or the subject property within an historic district; (2) The proposed work does not adversely affect the special character or special historical, architectural, or aesthetic interest or value of the landmark and its site or the district; (3) The architectural style, arrangement, texture, color, arrangement of color, and materials used on existing and proposed structures are compatible with the character of the existing landmark and its site or the historic district. (c) In determining whether to approve a landmark alteration certificate, the Landmarks Board shall consider the economic feasibility of alternatives, incorporation of energy-efficient design, and enhanced access for the disabled. Analysis: L Does the proposed application preserve, enhance, or restore, and not damage or destroy significant exterior architectural features of the landmark or the subject property within an historic district? Staff finds that the stained concrete path is generally compatible with features in the area and will not damage or destroy the property or the district. 2. Does the proposed application adversely affect the special character or special historic, architectural, or aesthetic interest or value of the district? Staff finds that the proposed application will not adversely affect the special character of the district as the stained concrete path is compatible with and similar to other paving materials on walk-ways at Chautauqua. 3. Is the architectural style, arrangement, texture, color, arrangement of color, and materials used on existing and proposed structures compatible with the character of the historic district? A variety of materials have been used for paving over the course of Chautauqua's history. While not ubiquitous, concrete has been used on pathways in the Chautauqua since at least the 1940s. Staff considers the limited use of stained concrete in this application appropriate and compatible with the character of the district. c. 'Dze Landmarks Board is required to consider the economic feasibility of alternatives, incorporation of energy-efficient design, and enhanced access for the disabled in determining whether to approve a Landmark Alteration Certificate. The path is necessary to enhance universal access to the Ranger Cottage, a building that is open to the public year-round at Chautauqua. The Board has adopted the Chautauqua Design Guidelines to help interpret the historic preservation ordinance. Staff has analyzed the walkway against relevant guidelines. It is important to note that the design guidelines are intended to be used as an aid to appropriate design and not as a checklist of items for compliance. Lack of conformance with an individual guideline is not necessarily reason for disapproval if the overall quality of the proposal is in keeping with the ordinance criteria listed above. CHAUTAUQUA DESIGN GUIDELINES Public Improvements Public improvements are especially important to the character of Chautauqua, and include such elements as streets, public parking, curbs, gutters, stone walls, benches, street lights, water fountains, and signs. The addition of contemporary examples of these elements has a greater impact on Chautauqua than on some other historic areas because so much of the Chautauqua site remains little changed. Whenever considering public improvements or changes to existing improvements, every attempt should be made to fit them into the existing historic site character. This may require modification, waiver or change to standards applied elsewhere for public improvements. The proposed walk-way provides universal accessibility into the Ranger Cottage, a non-contributing public building. Staff considers the material selection of concrete and design, blends with and does not detract from the historic character of the district. In particular, staff considers the flagstone slab a sensitive material transitioning, as it does from the street across the stone lined drainage ditch, to the stained concrete path. Sidewalks, Curbs and Gutters: Streets in Chautauqua do not have the familiar sidewalks, curbs and gutters however, drainage and erosion is a significant problem in many locations. Drainage improvements have included special curb and gutter sections especially designed to fit the character of the park. Where drainage improvements are required, existing sandstone gutters or the special curb and gutter sections should be used as a reference. Standard forined concrete LP._ curb and gutter sections, and concrete sidewalks are generally inappropriate, and every attempt should be made to find appropriate substitutes. An eclectic mixture of concrete and sandstone curbs and walks can be found throughout the site. A diagram detailing existing conditions, included as Attachment C, helps to illustrate those varying conditions. In short, there is no clear order to the installation of curbs and walks in the district as they have evolved over the history of Chautauqua. Different materials have been used at different times with differing results. The overall effect seems to contribute to the character of Chautauqua - reflecting the informal and camp-like feel of the place. The proposed stained concrete pathway is appropriate and not unlike concrete pathways found around the Chautauqua. Findings: This decision is consistent with the purposes and standards of the Historic Preservation Ordinance in that: 1. The installation of the concrete path to the east of the non-contributing Ranger Cottage, will not damage the character of the property or that of the Chautauqua Park Historic District (9-11-18,(b)1, B.R.C). 2. The stained concrete path will not adversely affect the historic character of the Chautauqua Park Historic District. (9-11-18,(b)2, B.R.C). 3. Ri this application, the material and texture of the stained concrete on a noncontributing property will not be incompatible with the historic character of the Chautauqua Park Historic District.

Project Description: Chautauqua Ranger Cottage ADA sidewalk The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) installed an ADA accessible sidewalk from the parking lot to the Chautauqua Ranger Cottage without attaining 4 Landmark Alteration Certificate. On January 28, 2009, OSMP met with the Design Review Committee. The sidewalk as built was not approved, and OSMP was asked to come back to the DRC with other, more historically sympathetic, alternatives. On March 18, OSMP went back to the DRC with three alternatives, none of which were approved by the DRC. OSMP was asked to research capping the sidewalk with flagstone to resemble historic flagstone found elsewhere within the Chautauqua Historic District. On May 20, OSMP presented plans to cap the sidewalk with flagstone. The DRC did approve the capping of the sidewalk with flagstone, but suggested bringing the issue to the full Landmark Board for discussion as there had been some concern that the flagstone may not be the right treatment for the sidewalk. .I Attachment B - - - .mil - . • 131*11 ~ 1 .,r; ^ .r _ I '11 ( ~ r _ .r r~i ~`•,i ~ 1br4r~f~ rich. t r r ~ ~ ~r .
