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

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

§                     The F.M. Simmons House is located at 625 Hermitate Court in Council District 1.

§                     Designation of this property could significantly contribute to its long-term preservation.

§                     The F.M. Simmons House is listed under Tax Parcel Identification Number 155-023-01, and the recommended designation would include the exterior of the house and outbuildings and the land associated with the tax parcel.

§                     The property is zoned R-3 single family residential zone.

§                     The property is owned by James and Mary Margaret Jordan.

§                     The potential amount of deferrable taxes would be approximately $2,715 for the City of Charlotte taxes and $4,812 for Mecklenburg County taxes.
