6-car garage proposed for historic W. Jefferson St. property; King Farm dairy barn plan on HDC agenda

Repair and renovation of the dairy barn complex at the former King Farm is on the agenda of the Rockville Historic District Commission tonight at City Hall at 7:30 PM. City staff is recommending approval of a plan that would replace the steel roof with a new terne steel roof that meets the Secretary of the Interior standards, repair the existing wood siding and doors. Only one door requires a full replacement.

The Thompson's Dairy lettering, as pictured above, will be reproduced on the new roof.

There is one condition for approval of the plan, which is that the original wood siding be reinstalled on the barn after the interior work is completed.

A potentially more controversial agenda item is a proposal to construct a six-car garage and circular driveway at the Luckett House at 107 W. Jefferson Street. The property is located in the West Montgomery Avenue Historic District.

This is a Courtesy Review by the HDC, and staff is seeking commissioners' advice for the applicant as to how these non-traditional elements can be incorporated into the existing property.
