Case Notes

Staff Recommendation
APPROVE R-1/H-1 (Historic Overlay) and Design Guidelines because:
1) The structures at 5220, 5308 and 5305 Lyons View Pike are architecturally and historically significant and their significance should be maintained with overlay protection. 2) The streetscape along this section of Lyons View is relatively intact; demolitions would weaken the architectural significance of the potential Lyons View Pike Historic District. 3) The J. Allen Smith House, which is owned by Cherokee Country Club, is in good structural condition, as studies for its reuse have confirmed. 4) Additional parking for Cherokee Country Club, as proposed for 5305 Lyons View Pike, can be provided in other locations.

The proposed H-1 Historic Overlay is consistent with "The Future of Our Past," and with the West City Sector Plan.
