Catherine Penkert, director of the Saint-Paul library, has resigned. “I will step down from my role as director to make way for another leader of a library system who holds such a special place in our community. It has truly been the honor of a lifetime to serve you in major libraries, especially during the historic time of a global pandemic and racial reckoning,” she said via an online announcement on September 6. It has been part of the library system since 2018. .

Effective September 17, Barb Sporlein, Deputy Principal, will assume the role of Acting Principal.

“Although I am leaving this position, I am still a proud resident of Saint Paul and a user of the library. I am deeply grateful to our community of Saint Paul. It has been an honor to serve you,” Penkert said.

“I am proud of the vision we have built together and our accomplishments as a team. You, our library users, are at the center of building a library system that invites all people to connect, learn, discover, and grow. We achieved this by eliminating late fines to ensure libraries are accessible to everyone in our community. Innovative programs like Drag Story Hour and Read Brave allow everyone to see themselves in libraries and inspire us to have crucial conversations as a city. In partnership, we’ve opened Career Labs to support job seekers and offered TechPaks to connect people to broadband as our lives go digital in 2020.”

NORTHAMPTON — The city’s Community Preservation Act committee will in turn review plans this week to rehabilitate, rather than demolish, the former St. John Cantius Catholic Church at 10 Hawley St.

Owner O’Connell Development is seeking $500,000 under the Community Preservation Act to fund repairs to the church’s masonry wall and roof where tiles are cracked and missing and gutters and pipes lowering must be replaced.

The work is part of a $4.6 million plan to use the church to build about ten residences.

Before the money is spent, the plan will have to be presented to the city council. Northampton distributes approximately $1.4 million in Community Preservation Act funds annually.

On August 8, the Municipal Historical Commission voted to support the renovation plans and accept responsibility for enforcing a preservation agreement on the property should O’Connell receive the money.

The Community Preservation Committee meets virtually at 7 p.m. Wednesday. A link to view the meeting via Zoom can be found on the city’s website.

The Historical Commission has received more than 40 letters expressing opinions on the project, said Historical Commission Chair Martha Lyon.

Northampton’s growing Polish Catholic immigrant community built the church at 10 Hawley St. in 1913.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield closed Hawley Street Church and Phillips Place as a place of worship during a wave of parish consolidations in 2010. The diocese was sold to O’Connell in 2020 for 1.6 million dollars as a result of repeated failed redevelopment efforts by other buyers.

At first, O’Connell said he intended to preserve the church building and put townhouses there. But in 2021, O’Connell said COVID had made that plan unprofitable and filed a still pending application to demolish the church.

The community fought back, and O’Connell came up with this redevelopment plan in the spring.

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) – Phoebe hopes to begin construction of their living and learning community with Albany Technical College soon.

That timeline may change now that the Albany Dougherty County Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) said it was sending a notice of appeal to superior court.

Moments before the end of the Albany City Commission meeting on Tuesday, commissioners received an email stating that the HPC was working to appeal the City Commission’s vote to overturn the Preservation Commission’s vote to decline. the project.

The only way for the City Board to overturn the HPC’s decision was to find that the HPC had abused its discretion in making a decision. This is the motion that City Commissioner Bob Langstaff made. The Cancellation vote was unanimous.

HPC President Bryan Harden said he followed historic guidelines when he decided to decline the original project proposal. (WALB)

HPC President Bryan Harden said he followed historic guidelines when making the decision.

“I personally love the image of the building, but my duty as CHP Commissioner is to read and review the guidelines. That’s what we did,” Harden said.

City Commissioner Chad Warbington said each person may interpret the guidelines differently, and what Phoebe and Albany Tech came up with retains the building’s historic value.

“I think it will be a building that honors our past and honors the school that was there. People can still walk by and reflect and have those elements that have been there for almost 100 years,” Warbington said.

City Commissioner Chad Warbington said Phoebe and Albany Tech have offered to retain the building’s historic value.(WALB)

Some elements mimic the original entrance, restore windows and reuse bricks salvaged during construction of the $40 million project.

Phoebe Putney Health System CEO and President Scott Steiner said restoring the building as is does not provide enough space and would cost nearly $70 million.

“We believe this will be an incredible asset to the entire community. Five hundred students will learn on hallowed grounds that have taught high school and college students for 75 years,” Steiner said.

Harden said imitation is not preservation and that approving demolition certificates would hurt Albany’s historic district.

“You have a Bo Arts style school from 1925. There are only two left in Albany. We started with six. I think there’s no doubt it will diminish our historic district,” Harden said.

Warbington said depending on the legal action, they hope to distribute Opportunity Certificates by Thursday. These certificates would give Pheobe the green light to start construction.

Harden said the HPC expects no buildings to be demolished until the appeals process has been exhausted.

The Rancho Santa Fe Forest Health and Preservation Committee (FHPC) was formed in 2012 to support the association and its residents’ efforts to preserve and enhance the forest canopy that makes our area so unique. The health of our forest is not only important for aesthetics, but also essential for fire safety.

In the 2018 Forest Health Study commissioned by the Association, it was noted that the Rancho Santa Fe forest has been in decline for more than a decade. The decline is particularly associated with the large canopy tree, the red gum eucalyptus, which was decimated by the red gum psyllid insect native to Australia. At the time of the study, approximately 42,000 eucalyptus trees were dead or dying across the Alliance.

Our challenge and urgency as a community is to remove this dangerous fire potential and replace these trees with greater species diversity while continuing to maintain the beauty of our “horizon” and lower the canopy more wide. We need every resident’s active participation in the Pact because over ninety percent of our trees are on private property.

In an effort to expand tree knowledge in the community, the FHPC worked with Association staff to develop the Arboretum bordering the San Elijo Golf Course and Via de Fortuna in which a variety of suitable trees are displayed with signs (click here for map/information). We support efforts to expand the Arboretum this year with over fifty additional trees in time for Arbor Day 2023.

Other high priority projects include the replanting of trees and shrubs around the perimeter of the golf course where trees have been removed during the last two golf course renovations and through natural life spans. In addition to much-needed shade for riders and walkers, this will provide screen against pavement as well as stray golf balls.

Other ongoing projects in the community include continued tree planting in the Arroyo Preserve and new trees adjacent to sports fields.

We are looking for additional members for our committee and encourage concerned residents to get involved. Please contact the Association or Leonard Gregory, President, directly at lengregory1@gmail.com for more information.

The St. Thomas-St. John’s Historic Preservation Committee made it clear to state Historic Preservation Office Director Sean Krigger on Tuesday that council members felt they weren’t getting the support they needed from employees. remunerated from the government to the preservation office. Committee members are volunteers.

Member David Knight Sr. said, “We don’t get enough support from the technician and the Preservation Office, and I’ve had enough. He added that the committee was “on the brink of revolt”.

Committee member Enrique Rodriguez said he drove through town and “I couldn’t believe the number of violations.” He said he took photos of the breaches and forwarded them to the Office of Preservation, but “nothing happened.”

The comments came after the committee spent around an hour discussing a request by Rudolfo and Natalie Brown, owners of the Midtown Guest House, to put tables on the cement slabs above the public gut in front of their cafe. .

The members agreed that the matter should not have come before them because the Browns did not own or lease the property they proposed to use. Krigger said he originally invited the Browns to make a request regarding signage violations he had seen at their facility.

The board also discussed cutting openings in the short wall surrounding the recently dedicated Statue of Liberty in Emancipation Garden on Tuesday.

For cultural reasons, the Statue of Liberty replaced the bust of King Christian, which was moved to Fort Christian. Krigger said the Statue of Liberty was seen as something people would want to be photographed next to and the wall around that discouraged closeness. He added that discussions have begun regarding appropriate landscaping for the circle.

The committee also approved the modification of plans approved in 2015 for the Board of Education to renovate its building at Dronningens Gade 62 to house conference facilities. Plans had to be changed due to extensive water damage from the 2017 hurricanes.

Pamela Montegut chaired the committee meeting.

FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Community Preservation Committee announced today, August 8, that the committee is now accepting applications for CPA Project eligibility.

Applications are available on the Framingham Community Preservation Committee website and
at the Planning and Community Economic Development Department in the Memorial Building at 150 Concord Street.

The application form is only available in English at the moment. The Committee is still working on a Spanish and Portuguese form.

Framingham passed the Massachusetts Community Preservation Act (CPA) in November 2020
by electoral referendum. In passing the law, voters agreed that owners would pay a 1% royalty
annual surtax on property taxes that can only be used for the City’s quality of life projects,
as defined by law. Passage of the law also made Framingham eligible to receive matching funds
from a state CPA trust fund.

It is estimated that the Committee will have approximately $2 million in the account when it comes time to award grants for projects.

This eligibility form has been prepared to determine if a potential project qualifies under the guidelines established by the Community Preservation Act. Projects eligible for funding revenue include: open space, historic preservation, outdoor recreation and community housing.

The city’s goal is for residents across the city to benefit from these projects, the committee said in a statement.

If a project is deemed eligible, applicants will be invited to submit a full application.

The full application form is expected to be available on or around September 1, 2022.
