Progress report on 919 Spring Garden Street

New owners and their architects

New owners Susan and Richard Stone, right, and Steve Johnson and Janet Mazzurco, owners of A408 Studio, at 919 Spring Garden Street

From James Keith:

I wanted to send along a positive progress note regarding 919 Spring Garden St. The roofers, Robert Leonard Roofing, are well along in their process of repairing/replacing the slate roof. They are working very hard, and the quality of work is obvious. Also of note: The rear addition to the home has been entirely framed in by A408 Studio and things are looking very nice.

Passing by this home continues to renew my commitment to this neighborhood. We are a strong group of residents, and our ability to make things happen is made clear by the progress at 919. I hope this property continues to be a reminder that when we collaborate with the right people, and continue to push for what is best for our neighborhood, we can and will accomplish all of the things necessary to improve the safety and infrastructure of our district while preserving the beautiful history that makes us Greensboro’s first Historic District.

Happy Holidays to all, safe travels, and please make sure someone is watching your place if you are leaving town.

Next CHNA Meeting: Dec. 1

Mark your calendars. The next College Hill Neighborhood Association meeting will be on Monday, Dec. 1, 2014 at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Church of the Covenant Presbyterian Church on South Mendenhall Street.

Why no meeting in November? Because the CHNA meeting always precedes the Historic Preservation Commission’s meetings. This makes it possible for us to weigh in on any Certificate of Appropriateness (CoA) applications affecting College Hill. The HPC combines its November and December meeting, so the CHNA will meet on the Monday before their combined Nov/Dec meeting.
