Please sign this petition by Wednesday, May 27 at 5:00 pm and tell the Little Rock Historic District Commission to DENY HDC2019-023 at 10th and Rock Streets in Little Rock.
This 15-unit residential development is designed with a variety of architectural styles and synthetic materials not found in the area. It is incompatible with the neighborhood in its size, scale and massing - it is too big for the site and sits too close to the street. It is not harmonious with the surrounding neighborhood homes - two of which are rare examples of Pre-Civil War cottages.
Located in the heart of the MacArthur Park Historic District this complex will diminish the historic character of one of Little Rock's oldest neighborhoods. MacArthur Park Historic District is a local ordinance district. This design does not comply with the ordinance guidelines and/or the zoning.
The Historic District Commission can stop this development. Compatible infill for this site can be designed and is welcomed for this location.
HDC2019-023 is wrong for this historic neighborhood.
