The following PDFs have been added to the Bouldincreek.org media library to facilitate discussion at Tuesday’s meeting related to the intention and benefits of adopting this tool.
Will be interesting to see how this plays out in practice.
The idea is that a house on a corner lot can’t easily have a wrap-around porch because of lot-size limitations, so now the encroachment into the front setback (an encroachment which everyone who’s ever enjoyed a conversation on a shady porch with a neighbor can probably support) can wrap around to the side setback as well, encouraging a more “connected” style of home much like the traditional homes of yore.
Overall this seems like a good thing. But “what defines a porch?” will likely become the question. What do you think?
Early last year, Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association voted to commission an evaluation of our neighborhood’s housing for historical significance and eligibility for designation as one or more local or National Register historic districts. The survey does not obligate residents or BCNA to apply for or become a historic district.
Preservation Central, Inc., an Austin-based historic preservation consulting firm conducted the study and presented to BCNA at our October General Association Meeting. A spreadsheet of the inventory in a PDF file is below, along with a PDF containing a discussion of the results.
