Amanda Tucker, RA Senior Planner City Hall, Suite 32 474 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 (518) 587-3550 ext. 2517 ----- Forwarded Message ----- From: camcameron@yahoo.com To: "amanda tucker" <amanda.tucker@saratoga-springs.org> Sent: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 1:56:47 AM Subject: 65 and 69 Phila Street proposed demolition CAUTION: This email originated outside of the City network. Please contact IT Support if you need assistance determining if it ' s a threat before opening attachments or clicking any links. Ms. Tucker: I am writing to the ZBA in opposition to the demolition of 65 and 69 Phila Street. The two historic homes are not yet past rehabilitation and conservation - and the current owners should NOT be rewarded for allowing two important parts of Saratoga ' s architectural history to decline by allowing their demolition and sale of the lots which would remain. The city should have some form of conservatorship which allows such woefully ignored historical homes to be preserved, as the irreplaceable detailing and craft which created them - and the past they represent - are a large part of what continues to draw people to Saratoga, both as visitors and as permanent residents and/or business owners! Attached are renderings of each home as they would appear conserved. No additions or fancy details are added - just the existing architectural work shown restored, and the bricl< on 69 Phila shown in its unpainted state. The original curved porch was stored inside 65 Phila and is shown reattached and restored. I hope the Board will receive copies of the renderings to see what could be - and what we will be losing if the delinquent current owners are allowed to destroy an important original part of a local neighborhood - and of Saratoga ' s heyday history. Please do not allow that destruction to happen! Sincerely, C.A.M.
