Central office back on agenda

SALISBURY — The proposed school central office will go before the city’s Historic Preservation Commission this week.
The commission meets at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in City Council chambers at City Hall, 217 S. Main St.
Members will hear plans for a 47,200-square-foot building in the 500 block of North Main Street to house most of Rowan-Salisbury School System’s administration.
A larger central office was originally slated for 329 S. Main St., a site that proved controversial and eventually failed.
Architect Bill Burgin will come before the Historic Preservation Commission again with plans for the new building. He will seek approval to demolish a vacant building on the site, all miscellaneous site improvements and construction of a three-story office building.
The commission will hold two public hearings.
Members will hear a variety of other requests, including:
• 422 E. Fisher St. William Kennedy, owner/applicant; Ken Weaver, agent
Remove metal roofing and replace with white three-tab shingles; remove asphalt roll roofing and replace with black rubber membrane roofing.
• 200 W. Innes St. John’s Lutheran Church, owner; Gray Stout, architect, agent/applicant
Reconstruction of front steps; relocation and reuse of existing handrails; repair of existing limestone at three front entry doors.
• 215 N. Main St. James A. Davis, owner/applicant
Remove and replace four existing two-story windows; new windows will be tempered insulated glass and will match existing windows on rear of building.
Commission members also will discuss a demolition notification for 214 Chestnut St. and the Historic Preservation Incentive Grants, which are due Sept. 5.
Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.
