     Highlights of Comparison

   General percentages/ratios
    of A, B and C remain the
   Nearly half of previous out-
    of-period resources
    reevaluated as contributing
   A number of resources
    identified as demolished
    since 1977
   No evaluation and obvious
    duplicate records labeled as
                Updating the NRHP
                Status of Resources
   Property owners of newly
    contributing resources may wish to
    take advantage of tax credit
    program available for NRHP-listed
   Official eligibility status for
    resources built during the period
    for significance as noted in the
    original NRHP nomination (1850s-
    1930s) may be changed by SHPO
   Eligibility status for resources built
    after 1940 can only be changed by
    submitting an amended
    nomination to the National Park
    Service (NPS) or by an individual

   Avenues Historic District
Recommended Further ILS Survey Work

                   Conduct Intensive
                   Level Surveys (ILS) of
                   resources built
                   between 1930 and
                   1965 to determine
                   significance and most
                   appropriate cut-off
                   date for contributing

    Observations on the results of
    Design Review in the Avenues
   Current guidelines adopted
    in 1999
   Increase in use of
    compatible materials:
    primarily porches,
    fenestration, garages, etc.
   Rehab or replication of
    historic materials — 1)
    examples of asbestos siding
    decreased from 146 to 39,
    2) high number of frame
    houses with new paint
   New construction more
    compatible in scale
Recommendations for the Avenues
      Landmark District
                   Determine whether changes to
                    NRHP status should determine
                    landmark status for properties
                    in the Avenues Historic District
                   Updating the status of
                    properties at the City
                    Landmark level should be at
                    the discretion of the Historic
                    Landmark Commission and the
                    Salt Lake City Planning Division
                   The commission and staff
                    should have sufficient
                    resources in place to handle
                    the case load required by
                    newly designated contributing
                    buildings that may now qualify
                    for design review
                Benefits of a
               Historic District
   All Contributing Buildings are
    listed on the NRHP or the Local
    Landmark District
   Potential State & Federal
    Historic Preservation Tax Credits
    for the Rehabilitation of NRHP
    listed buildings
   Design Review for Local Listing
   Public Education
     – History
     – Rehabilitation Compatibility
     – New Development Compatibility
   Community Pride
