Historic Zoning Comm. To Discuss 'Sun' Sign, Sevier Home

The Greeneville Historic Zoning Commission will meet Tuesday to consider an application for a Certificate of Appropriateness for a new sign at the offices of The Greeneville Sun and to discuss an item of old business -- renovations at the historic Valentine Sevier home, located at 214 N. Main St.

The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. in the board room at Greeneville Town Hall.

The commission was to consider the Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) for changes to the sign at the Sun's office at their previous meeting, on Oct. 16.

However, board members determined that they needed more information about the materials that are proposed for use in the sign before a determination on the COA could be made.

Also at the Oct. 16 meeting, commissioners briefly discussed the renovation of 214 N. Main St., even though the item was not on the agenda.

Commissioners voted to send a letter to the property's owners, Andrea "Andy" Daniels and her husband, Mayor W.T. Daniels, to express the commission's "displeasure" and "disappointment" about an aspect of the renovation.

The commission had, in March, voted to allow the Daniels to replace one window in their home for the commission to review and vote on before all the windows in the 1820s house were replaced with the same kind of window.

The commission's action followed discussion about whether it was appropriate to approve a request from Mrs. Daniels to use modern insulating windows and vinyl window sashes to replace the existing windows and sashes in the residence.

It was pointed out at the meeting that the vinyl material, while very widely used in construction for some years now, did not exist when the house was built.

Using historically-consistent materials if it is possible and feasible to do that is a normal principle and goal used by historical zoning bodies here and elsewhere in regulating the restoration or renovation of historic structures.

Following the discussion, Mrs. Daniels agreed to the commission's request to replace one window and let the commission review its appearance for possible approval.

She also agreed to consult with the commission concerning the type of guttering to be used in the renovation project.

However, according to commissioners, work to replace all of the windows with the vinyl material was carried out in the following months without the commission's being notified so that the planned review of the single window could be made.

In an interview Friday, Mrs. Daniels explained the reasons why she felt that it was essential to use the more modern -- although rather old-appearing -- windows in renovating the Sevier house.

But she acknowledged that she had not followed through on the agreed-upon review procedure concerning the windows and also the guttering used in the renovation of the house, and said that she regretted not having done so.

At the meeting on Tuesday, commissioners are scheduled to discuss the status of the renovation project at the historic North Main Street home, then, at the Daniels' invitation, be given an on-site tour of the project by them.
