Flagstaff Historic District Update

This past Tuesday, the proposal to declare the residential area between Thorpe Park and downtown an historic district hit the City Council - again. This was the third time before the City Council as those of you following this thread know. The ordinance would establish certain height restrictions on new development in the neighborhood.

The ordinance to establish the district was given preliminary approval by a vote of 4-2. A significant majority of residents in the area supported the ordinance by signing a petition to start the process earlier this year. A vocal minority was most of who were heard from Tuesday night. The final City Council vote is scheduled for June 19.

Pictures for the Flagstaff Townsite Neighborhood

Here are some pictures from the neighborhood between Thorpe Park and downtown, at the base of Observatory Hill in Flagstaff, AZ. This is the neighbor that is on the national historic registry and for which the City is proposing a designated historic district that would create certain building restrictions.

West Downtown Historic District Hearing Coming Up Tuesday
Ann Heitland, Flagstaff Real Estate - Associate Broker, GRI, CRS (RE/MAX Peak Properties)

May 22 at City Hall, the Planning and Zoning Commission will hold its hearing on the proposed designation of the west downtown residential district as an official "historic district." Readers of this thread will recall that the City approved the district earlier this year and then found they had made a procedural mistake in only having a hearing before the Historic Commission and not the Planning and Zoning Commission. So now we are in "re-do" phase. The City Council will consider the commissions' recommendations in June.

This Tuesday's meeting begins at 4 p.m. in City Council Chambers.

Flagstaff Historic District - Redo!
Ann Heitland, Flagstaff Real Estate - Associate Broker, GRI, CRS (RE/MAX Peak Properties)

Oops, the City Council forgot to run the historic district for the Townsite through public hearings before the Planning and Zoning Commission. (They did it only through the historic commission and the city council.)  So now it has to be redone through all three bodies (P&Z, historic commission, council). The city attorneys caught it after the last city council vote to approve. Wake up city attorneys! -- This is all too reminiscent of the 4th St. bridge fiasco. (Remember when the city figured out that they didn't own the land they were trying to deed to the railroad? Our bridge was delayed for months.) In my opinion, the city management needs to do a remedial course on working with their lawyers.

Flagstaff Historic District

The Flagstaff City Council voted last night to approve the proposal to designate the Old Town area of Flagstaff (generally between Thorpe and Wheeler Parks) as an historic district.  The "second reading" and likely final approval will happen at the Flagstaff City Council meeting on February 20. 

 The designation will place certain height and other restrictions on buildings in the area.

 If you want to comment about this, contact a city council member in the next 13 days!
