Definition of ‘historically sensitive’ rings false

Regarding the proposal by Tintle, Inc., for the 15,000 square foot of retail and living space on Union Street in Nevada City, I would like to address their definition of “historically sensitive,” which they define as a building with false fronts. This construction would serve as a detraction from the surrounding historical buildings and the continuity of the downtown area. Nevada City is a treasure that should be treated as such. Preservation begins with action and the prioritization of saving the past over the revenue generated to mar it.
