TO AMEND TITLE 8 OF THE BLOOMINGTON MUNICIPAL CODE, ENTITLED “HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND PROTECTION” TO ESTABLISH A HISTORIC DISTRICT – Re: Kirkwood Manor Historic District Located at 322 East Kirkwood Avenue (The Ellis Company, LP, Petitioner)

This ordinance amends Chapter 8.20 of the Bloomington Municipal Code entitled “The List of Designated Historic Districts” in order to designate “Kirkwood Manor - 322 East Kirkwood Avenue” as a historic district. The Ellis Company, LLP sought this action and after a public hearing on April 14, 2016, the Historic Preservation Commission (Commission) recommended that the structure be designated historic with a rating as “Notable” based upon certain architectural criteria set forth in Title 8 of the Bloomington Municipal Code entitled “Historic Preservation and Protection.” Historic designation of a property under Title 8 of the Bloomington Municipal Code provides for the Commission or staff to approve a certificate of appropriateness before conspicuous changes to the exterior of sites and structures may be made and, thereby, helps assure that the historic significance of properties are preserved. Note: The ordinance was amended with Am 01, which clarified the language of the penultimate "Whereas" clause.
