Encroachment Gives Cultural Resources Office Some Review Power

by Michael R. Allen

Today’s Preservation Board agenda contains an interesting preliminary review: the Cultural Resources Office (CRO) has jurisdiction over a poorly-conceived streamline modern industrial building at 4110 Beck Avenue due to review jurisdiction of encroachments in the public right of way. The false pilasters proposed to be added are encroachments, and CRO recommends denial.

The other changes, some also out of character, don’t fall under the CRO’s review powers and cannot be considered. Read the item here.

UPDATE: This matter was not on the final agenda.
