  1. Spring WorkshopMarch 10, 2007 PowerPoint Presentation

  2. Historic Resource Impact Studies • Impact Studies 101 • Case Study / Break-outs • Present Findings • Panel Discussion

  3. HRIS “101” • John Snook, Brandywine Conservancy • Bob Wise, Wise Preservation Planning • Todd Pohlig, Pohlig Builders • Brian Lihou, Break-out Boss

  4. HRIS Defined • (Now) standardized means for municipalities to: - identify and assess significance of historic resources / landscapes, - identify potential impacts, - consider recommendations To protect those resources during the subdivision and land development processes.

  5. HRIS 101 • What they are • What you should expect • How they should be used • Implications (planning/legal) • Effectiveness • Developer’s Point of View • Case Study / Break outs

  6. H.R.I.S. – Typical Ordinance • Applicability: Required / Waived - Subdivision / Land Development on land containing Historic Resource - Within x feet of Resource - Within x feet of Bridge/Road Construction

  7. Land Development Projects “Clay Lady” House Presbyterian Church

  8. “Clay Lady” Building Example of successful adaptive reuse where impact study was required

  9. Types of HRIS Land Development Subdivision

  10. Road Construction Camp Indian Run Wallace Twp.

  11. H.R.I.S. – Typical Ordinance • Contents - Background Info - Site Description - Description of Historic Resources - Statement of Significance - Photographs - Historic Narrative

  12. HRIS – Typical Ordinance • Qualification of Preparer • Proposed Change - Project Description - Potential Impact • Mitigation Recommendations • HC Report

  13. A Typical Impact Study

  14. HRIS Contents • Executive Summary • Background Information • Historic Overview • Physical Description & Significance • Proposed Changes, Impacts, and Mitigation Recommendations • Bibliography • Appendices

  15. 1. Executive Summary HISTORIC RESOURCE IMPACT STUDY • Brief project overview • Purpose • Historic resources • Impacts and recommendations

  16. 2. Background Information • Identification - Applicant / Recipient • Project / Date of Plan • Applicability - Cite Ordinance

  17. 2. Background Information • Purpose - Identify Historic Resources - Determine Historic Significance - Identify Potential Impacts - Recommend Mitigation – including Alternative Plans

  18. 2. Background Information • Personnel / Dates • Definitions • Subject Tract • Historic Resources in study area • Maps

  19. Aerial (Google Earth) USGS

  20. 3. Historical Overview • History • Historic Maps • Photographs Key: Significance

  21. Historic Documentation Chain of Title

  22. 4. Physical Description & Significance • Subject Tract description • Property • Historic Resources • “Adjacent” Historic Resources • Statement of Significance

  23. Existing Conditions

  24. 4. Physical Description & Significance • Subject Tract description • Property - Context - Landscape - Historic Resources - Minor Landscape Features - Specimen Trees and Vegetation - Roads, etc. - Views (Inside and Out)

  25. Historic Resource: Moses Willing House

  26. Landscape: Moses Willing House – “Front Yard” (NPS Guidelines)

  27. Landscape Vistas

  28. Landscape Proportions

  29. b. Historic Resource Description • Photos • Site Plans • Detail Photos

  30. c. Adjacent Historic Resources

  31. d. Statement of Significance • Important component of report • “Credibility” Statement • Justifies Recommendations • (Should be) based on standard or defined criteria

  32. d. Statement of Significance • National Register Criteria • Association with Event / Trend • Association with Sig. Person • Architecture / Architect • Archaeology

  33. d. Statement of Significance • Local Significance - Important Local Resource - Prominent Local Resource - Potential for Reuse

  34. 5. Project, Impacts, Mitigation • Project Description • Impact Levels Defined / Determined • Specific Project Elements • Proposed changes • Potential impacts • Mitigation recommendations

  35. Goal – “LTEV” • “Long Term Economic Viability of Historic Resource”

  36. Projects, Impacts, Mitigation • Organization • Subject Tract • Historic Resources • Adjacent Resources • Enumerated for Reference

  37. WPP - Five Levels of Impact • Direct physical impact • Significant visual impact • Noticeable visual impact • Minor visual impact • No impact

  38. Impacts (Remember LTEV) • Historic Views (from inside / outside) • Demolition • Alterations • Infrastructure: Roads, Curbs, SWM, Lighting • New Construction / Architecture • Grading • Orientation • Noise / Traffic • Landscaping • Uses • Small Scale Resources • Open Space / Trails

  39. Mitigation Recommendations • None • Buffering • Alter the Plan

  40. Mitigation Recommendations (Remember LTEV) • Historic Resources - Protect - Stabilize - Reuse - Preserve Resource / Views • Landscape buffer • Architecture • Alter Plans • Documentation
