It seems as though the case is closed on the conflict over 319 North Alfred Street.

A little over a month after the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) shot down an attempt to have a home modification in the historic Parker-Gray District retroactively approved, the home is reportedly in the clear again after the exterior piping was removed.

The BAR said at a meeting in December that the homeowner was in an admittedly “crappy situation” of having to pay to have an already expensive new HVAC system removed or altered.

In an email shared by the realtor, the historic preservation architect reportedly visited the home and confirmed that the exterior piping has been removed, the holes have been patched, and the wall was painted: resolving the outstanding violations associated with the property.
