The Madison Historic District Board of Review on Monday approved seven certificates of appropriateness. They were:
Dwight Inskeep, 221 W. Fifth St., to install six vinyl windows
Richard and Sherry Eblen, 411 W. First St., to remove a slate roof, fix box gutters and install a new roof
Tom Woodburn, 723 E. Second St., to repair a front porch, vinyl windows and door
William Adams, 705 W. Third St., to replace nine windows
Frankie Long, 946 W. Main St., to demolish an existing garage and building a new two-car garage
Erik Grove and Madison Apothecary, 835 W. Main St., to extend the back of the residence to enclose the rear staircase and provide storage area
Dick and Marsha McCracken, 521 E. Main St., for new wood windows and wood shutters
In other business, the board gave City Building Inspector Mark Johnson their recommendation that the unsafe structure at 213 Cravens St. be torn down.
The board does not have the authority to demolish the structure, but Johnson said he plans on bringing the proposal before the Board of Public Works to get permission to demolish.
Johnson also said he has tests that look for lead-based paints. If anyone wishes to have a test done, contact Johnson at City Hall at 265-8300.
