The Idyllwild Historic Preservation District local review board met with one item on its agenda. The meeting, at the Idyllwild Library on Thursday, July 27, was to discuss exterior reworking of the façade of Village Market, including a planned deck.
Under the district’s design guidelines, decks added to the front or side of a historic resource within the district, of which Village Market is one, fall within the board’s jurisdiction to review.
Chair Warren Monroe noted,“They [Village Market owners] seem to be doing everything right.” Board member Nancy Borchers was very complimentary about the new sign in the front of Village Market designed by local metal artist Dore Capitani. “It’s beautiful,” said Borchers.
Village Market Manager Scott McCormack said there is a plan to create a mural around the historic Selden Belden sign that for years was over the main entrance. It has been moved to the side of the building and also will be lit.
The next meeting of the board will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, at the Idyllwild Library. Board meetings have gone to a quarterly schedule.
