Re: Denial of Permit Application No. 100847083

Dear Chairman Tunney:
This letter is to inform the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks, and Building Standards that the Commission on Chicago Landmarks (the "Commission") has issued the attached written decision disapproving the above permit application.
On May 16, 2019, the Commission on Chicago Landmarks ("Commission") unanimously voted to adopt a Final Landmark Recommendation to the City Council for the Pilsen Historic District and the Commission's recommendation was introduced to City Council on June 20, 2019. According to Section 2-120-630 of the Municipal Code of Chicago, if the Commission issues a preliminary disapproval of an application within a preliminarily designated district, pursuant to Sections 2-120-760 and 2-120-780, the Commission shall schedule and conduct a public hearing on the application for permit and shall notify the City Council of its recommendations thereon within 90 days of the date the application for permit is received by the Commission.

On December 19, 2019 the public hearing was held and on January 9, 2020 the Commission issued their final denial ofthe permit application. Per Section 2-120-820, if City Council does'not pass an ordinance granting the proposed landmark designation within 90 days after the recommendation of the Commission, then the application for the above permit shall be deemed approved by the Commission.

Kathleen Dickhut, Deputy Commissioner Bureau of Planning, Historic Preservation and Sustainability
