Review of Projects

There were no projects to be reviewed.

PC-HPC- Work Sessions

Methods to limit the denominator in a FAR procedure were discussed. The question of how to present the ideas of one or more triggers was discussed. Bob Booher explained how triggers or gates would cause more rules to be invoked for larger projects but could permit an easier process for smaller building projects.

The Annual HPC Award

The members discussed candidate projects for the annual award. We decided that we did have criteria. A decision will be made at the next meeting.

Other Business

Potential Workshops and lectures were discussed. The HPC budget was considered and $1000 was thought to be needed for secretarial work, $5000 for a matching grant, and $500 for the plaque and awward for the coming year.

Issues Postponed

Various HPC issues were postponed: Changing Design Guidelines; Margot Bohan’s ideas on re-examining the HPC building permit process, revisions of the list of contributing structures. These matters will be covered at a subsequent meeting.
