  • HPA Number: 94-440
  • Building Name: Burnett Residence
  • Address(es): 1017 I St. SE
  • Date of Order: 28-Dec-94

Summary:

Applicant sought to install metal siding to her residence located in the Capitol Hill Historic District, claiming that using replacement wooden siding was too expensive, and that an order denying the permit would effect an unreasonable economic hardship. The Mayor's Agent noted that Applicant had filed none of the required information prior to the hearing to support her claim of economic hardship and, citing testimony from the Chief of the Historic Preservation Division of the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs that fixing or replacing wooden siding would likely be cheaper than installing new metal siding, concluded that Applicant failed to establish economic hardship.

Economic Hardship:

Applicant failed to file any of the required information to establish economic hardship before her hearing with the Mayor's Agent, and merely relied on her own testimony regarding the replacement of the siding on her residence in the Capitol Hill Historic District. The Mayor's Agent, citing compelling testimony in opposition, concluded that the Applicant had failed to establish economic hardship.
