Meeting Date: 09/16/2020  
From: Mark Reavis, Heritage Preservation Officer and Neighborhood Planner

Bungalow Court fat 120 W Butler Ave.
Address: 120 E Butler Ave.
Type of Action: Consultation with realtor on property for sale
The impressive collection of small and large bungalows located on Butler Ave are listed for sale. These stuccoed building are representative of the Hispanic heritage of the Southside District. The project was noted for sale with a pre-application meeting with various staff. The applicant was looking at the property for demolition and clearing the site for new construction. The applicant decided to not pursue purchase for several reasons. It must be noted that this site will continue to be threatened with demolition as has been the result of other property development along Butler.  
In an effort to inform the listing agent a one page document was prepared to highlight the federal tax incentive available to this property within the Southside National register District. The incentive is a 20% tax credit for certified rehabilitation in compliance with the US Secretary of the Interior Standards for Rehabilitation. Education of Realtors and the public regarding alternative to demolition is a top Heritage Preservation Program priority (document attached).
