In a short meeting Tuesday morning, the Denison Historic Preservation Board received two cases related to Main Street businesses.


In its first action of the morning, the board approved the use of vinyl lettering and fresh paint for a leather-working store located at 613 W. Main St. The applicant, Michael Powers, said he plans to add vinyl lettering and signage to the front windows.


Additionally, Powers plans to repaint portions of the front facade that were damaged when a sign was removed from the front of the building


In its second action, the Board received an update on a previous case involving 205 W. Main St. Matt Hanley, who owns the building and is on the Denison City Council, previously requested permission to replace the windows on the second floor of the building with modern windows that match the original design.


"Due to the manufacturer’s engineering, the bottom sashes did not open as high as we originally presented," Main Street Director Donna Dow said, reading a prepared statement from Hanley.


Dow said she received a similar request for an update by another property owner that was submitted too late to be included in the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting. Dow said she would take the opportunity to explore adding a line item to each agenda to discuss updates on cases.
