Historic Preservation on City of Webster Groves Webpage:

Suggestions were made as to what would be beneficial to add to the webpage.

the education brochures that the commission has developed, a FAQ section,
agendas and meeting minutes, information on how to research the history of

3. “At Risk”
The list that Elyse McBride has
developed from inventory sheets that were obtained from St. Louis County and the
“At Risk” list in the green Historic Preservation Manual (pg. 11) have been
combined and a short list of priority properties for nomination as City
Landmarks has been developed. It was determined that 6 properties from the
list would be considered. These include 9 S. Bompart, 415 W. Kirkham, 532 Lee,
17 N. Maple, 440 Selma, and 17 Theater Lane. Members will be sent the
inventory sheets for these properties and will review them prior to the next
May training will be a demonstration
of the process of nomination for a city landmark in preparation for the list of
“at risk” properties.
The commission requested $1500 for
taking photographs of residential properties in historic districts and city
landmarks. It was determined that the budget requested monies will be used to
pay a professional to take photos, but that in the future the commission would
like to use volunteers to take photos, if possible. Todd Meyer will contact
either Joe Schuester or Eric Rothenbuller at Webster University to see if the
photography department can establish a class project or club activity that will
help the commission obtain photos of the designated properties of historical
significance on a pro bono basis. Elyse McBride and Dottie Alexander will work
on a prioritized list of properties for which photos are needed.
The next HPC meeting
will be held May 15, 2013.
Frank Janoski moved
that the meeting be adjourned and Bridget Keitel seconded.
