Re: Three historic apartment dwellings at 1841, 1845 and 1851 Kelton Avenue

Dear Council Member Weiss,

On March 5, 2003, the Cultural Heritage Commission unanimously moved to include three 1920s Mediterranean-style buildings, located at 1841, 1845 and 1851 Kelton Avenue, on the City's list of Historic-Cultural Monuments, subject to adoption by the City Council. 

The purpose of this letter is to advise you that, after duly considering the matter at its regularly scheduled meeting on March 13, 2003, the Westwood Neighborhood Council voted to support the Commission's designation and to write this letter, urging you and the City Council to adopt the Commission's decision.

Sincerely yours,

Westwood Neighborhood Council
