                                MINUTES FOR PUBLIC HEARING

To all persons deemed interested or affected by the Town of Barnstable’s Hyannis Main Street
Waterfront Historic District Commission Ordinance under Article LX of Chapter III of General
Ordinances of the Town of Barnstable, you are hereby notified that a hearing was held in the basement
level Conference Room of the School Administration Building at 230 South Street, Hyannis, MA at
7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, August 16, 2006. Chair Jessop called the meeting to order at 7:12 P.M.
Commission members present were Marina Atsalis, Barbara Flinn and Joe Cotellessa. Also present
was Danielle St. Peter, Recording Secretary.

Continued Business:
Housing for All Corporation, 83 School Street, Hyannis, MA, Map 327, Parcel 249 – demolition
of existing garage.
Linda Bradstreet and Paul Hebert were present. Ms. Bradstreet explained that they are proposing to
demolish the existing garage to make room for a new dwelling unit for the “Housing for All
Corporation.” The Commission determined that everyone is familiar with the site. Jessop stated that
the existing garage appears to be a later model because it is designed for automobiles it has a
storage/apartment over. It is basically a two car garage designed to match the house and has no
historical significance. A motion was made by Flinn and was seconded by Cotellessa that the
Certificate of Demolition be approved as submitted. So moved unanimously.

AYE: Unanimous
NAY:
ABSTAINED:

New Business:
Housing for All Corporation, 83 School Street, Hyannis, MA, Map 327, Parcel 249 – construct
new dwelling.
Linda Bradstreet and Paul Hebert were present. They explained that the proposed Cape-style building
will be located behind the existing house and shares the driveway with the abutter on the adjacent lot.
Jessop noted that the Greek dentil crown is probably not appropriate for the back building and the 1/22
frieze is too large, particularly for a small secondary structure. Flinn stated that she likes 6/6 windows
but the architect said that they had chosen the 6/1 because it makes the building different and it fits in
with that neighborhood. Atsalis noted that there are skylights proposed for the front of the building
and Jessop noted that doghouse dormers would be a sizeable increase in cost for this building. The
architect added that because the rooms are small in size, it is important for them to use the space to the
fullest potential and doghouse dormers would decrease the interior space of those rooms. They will be
using stained shingles left to weather, white trim, Dual Gray asphalt roof shingles, front door to be
painted “Shutter Green” and the porch and deck to be wood finished natural. A motion was made by
Flinn and was seconded by Atsalis that the HHDC approves the Certificate of Appropriateness for a
new dwelling as modified to 6/6 windows with snap in grills and to decrease the fascia to a gutter size.
Interested party Dick Andres was present bringing up the new Affordable Housing Ordinance. Staff
explained that is another step that the applicants have to take and is not something determined by the
HDC. So moved unanimously.
AYE: Unanimous
NAY:
ABSTAINED:

Sign-A-Rama, 342 Main Street, Hyannis, MA, Map 327, Parcel 006-001 – new signage and
relocation of existing signage.
Jim McDermott was present. Mr. McDermott explained that the sign on Main Street would be
removed (above Lazar) and the perpendicular sign from Barnstable Road would be relocated to that
façade the brick above the existing signage on Main Street. The hanging sign will not go below the
window frame. The proposed rear sign would be white with black and blue lettering. Jessop stated that
he does not feel that the rear sign is appropriate, and Cotellessa stated that he felt it was a billboard.
The Commission had no trouble with the perpendicular sign on Main Street. They stated that they
would allow them an identical perpendicular sign on the alleyway directing people to the back
entrance that way. Mr. McDermott asked if they could add the line “at 342 Main Street” to the bottom
of the Barnstable Road Sign and the Commission was agreeable. A motion was made by Flinn and
was seconded by Cotellessa that the HHDC denies the rear sign and allow the Main Street sign to
match the Barnstable Road sign. So moved unanimously.

AYE: Unanimous
NAY:
ABSTAINED:

Plymouth Sign Co., 331 Main Street, Hyannis, MA, Map 327, Parcel 106 – new signage.
Mike Caggiano was present. Mr. Caggiano stated that they are proposing new signage at the new
Cape Cod Times building. The signage areas are already installed on the fascia, as are the gooseneck
lights. All of the new signs will consist of individually cut pre-formed solid PVC letters that are 2/3”
thick to cast shadows. Atsalis and Flinn agreed that the signage seems a little busy; Mr. Caggiano said
that all of the businesses are very individual with individual signs/logos. Atsalis stated that the
capecodonline.com sign with the seagull looks a too crowded. Mr. Caggiano said that he could
separate them a little, centering the gull under the left hand light, to create a larger space between the
seagull and the lettering. Atsalis stated that would be acceptable. A motion was made by Cotellessa
and was seconded by Flinn that the HHDC approves the Certificate of Appropriateness as modified.
So moved unanimously.

There being no further business, a motion was made by Flinn and was seconded by Atsalis that the
HHDC meeting adjourns. So moved unanimously.

Respectfully Submitted,

Danielle St. Peter
Recording Secretary
