§                     The city has received a recommendation from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC) to designate the Ashford House as a local historic landmark.

§                     On December 14, 2020, a public hearing was conducted to consider historic landmark designation for the property known as the Ashford House. Public comments were received in favor of this action.

§                     The Ashford House is located at 241 Hoskins Mill Avenue and is part of the Hoskins Cotton Mill Village in Council District 2.

§                     Designation of these properties could significantly contribute to their long-term preservation.

§                     The Ashford House is listed under Parcel Identification Number (PID) 063-061-03, and the recommended designation would include the exterior of the house and the land associated with the tax parcels.

§                     PID 063-061-02 is also recommended for designation and is historically associated with the house.

§                     The properties are both zoned B-1.

§                     The properties are owned by Travis M. Ashford and have remained family-owned for four generations.

§                     The potential amount of deferrable taxes would be $187 for the City of Charlotte taxes and $331 for Mecklenburg County taxes.
