Title
Reroof a single-family dwelling with a metal roof and remove a chimney (B)

Petition HP-21-19. James Whitton, agent for Brooke & Nicholas Armfield. Certificate of Appropriateness to reroof an existing single-family dwelling with a metal roof and remove a chimney. Located at 530 NE 3rd Street. This building is contributing to the Northeast Residential Historic District.
