NEW BUSINESS

a.)     McCord-Nolen Commercial/Office Project - (Four new buildings, 1 building renovation)

The Commissioners suggested the following changes:

Existing McCanless Building – Add chimneys on both the north and south sides.  Make the entrance more dramatic with wider casings around door and railings on porch.  Change the windows to add more divided light windows or muntins (wooden window pane dividers) on all buildings.  Possibly use wider casings around windows.

Building 1 – Enlarge windows at top on front to match up with doors below and/or add shutters.  Add windows on north side where there won’t be any dormers.  Add masonry bases around edges of porches.  Add cornice detail to roof-line like on building 2. 

Building 2 – Apply the masonry base around porch edges to all buildings.

Building 3 – Possibly add shutters to the dormer.  Add wider casings around the front door.

Building 4 – Add more detail elements on chimneys all the way up, not just at the top.  Make the center panel on the top railing more ornamental.
