Explanation
* The city has received a recommendation from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC) to amend the existing designation ordinance for the Dowd House.
* Public hearings are required prior to City Council action on designation requests.
* The Dowd House is located at 2216 Monument Street in Council District 3.
* Amending the designation ordinance could significantly contribute to the long-term preservation of the Dowd House.
* The Dowd House is listed under Parcel Identification Number (PID) 067-061-05, and the ordinance would be amended to clarify that the interior of the house and the land associated with the tax parcel are included in the designation. The amendment would also add .1916 acres of land historically associated with the house (a portion of Tax parcel 067-06-106) to the designation.
* The properties are both zoned MUDD-O mixed use development.
* The properties are owned by Mecklenburg County.
* The property is currently exempt from property taxes. Based on the current value, if the ordinance were amended the potential amount of deferrable taxes would increase approximately $41 for the City of Charlotte taxes and $73 for Mecklenburg County taxes.
* In compliance with NC G.S. 166A-19.24 Remote meetings during certain declarations of emergency, written comments on the public hearing topic will be accepted by the Clerk's Office through December 15, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. Any additional comments received will be provided to Council.
