  1. I’m wondering if I read the report correctly. The actual property owner is requesting a landmark review while planning redevelopment of both the home and the adjacent parking lot? Would this be unusual?
    Normally I would imagine that if redevelopment was the goal research and possible discovery of historical value would he undesirable.
    I’m just becoming familiar with the process and would appreciate a kind interpretation on this point.
