He informed the Commission that the City is nearing the final steps in the application process for Fruit Row (N 1st Ave from Yakima Ave to D St) to be on the National Register of Historic Places. Property owners will be informed before the City submits the nomination form, and will be invited to attend a future Historic Preservation Commission meeting. Audience member George Pechtel spoke on his work with staff to get this project started and thanked staff and the Commission for their work on this effort. Commission Members 1 Cynthia Hall • Alixanne Pinkerton • Paul Edmondson • Joe Mann • Dawn King B. Northwest Vernacular Contact Martin stated that the contract has been signed by DAHP (Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation) and Northwest Vernacular for NW Vernacular to execute a reconnaissance -level survey of Naches Parkway, which is due to DAHP in September of 2020. Yakima City Council must adopt a resolution to accept the grant from DAHP, which is scheduled to occur on February 4, 2020. NW Vernacular will present a report to the Commission on the survey results and perhaps to the Planning Commission as well. He explained that after the survey is complete, the next step would be to develop local design standards for the district. The southern portion of Naches Ave may be pursued for a historic nomination as well at a later time. VII. Other Business Martin indicated that he is still advocating for the City to receive a portion of the funds from the Yakima County recording fees that are to be set aside for historic preservation efforts as described in House Bill 1386 (2005-06). Martin also informed the Commission that he voiced on the annual survey sent by DAHP that Yakima has not received any of this funding. Brief discussion took place on the desire for a matching grant that could help homeowners in the Naches Parkway area to improve the facades of the historic homes. It was mentioned that there is new signage at Trolley Barn. VIII. Adjournment A motion to adjourn to February 26, 2020 was passed with unanimous vote. This meeting adjourned at approximately 6:02 p.m. Prepared, Respectfully Submitted By: Lisa Maxey Planning Technician City of Yakima Planning Division Commission Members 2 Cynthia Hall • Alixanne Pinkerton • Paul Edmondson • Joe Mann • Dawn King
