Does this building site or yard contribute to the overall
visual character from a distance? Yes.
LOOK + IDENTIFY
The design and materials of this little landscape, which includes the
iron fence along the sidewalk, the curved walk leading to the porch, and
the various plantings are all essential components of the historic property
as a whole.
WHAT IF THE BUILDING SITE IS ALTERED?
In a district where parking spaces are in great demand,
front yards are sometimes converted to off-street parking. In this case,
the building site would essentially be destroyed and, as a result, the
visual character of the historic property would be completely changed.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
Preserve a character-defining site in the process of rehabilitating a historic building for a continuing or new use!
