  1. Nowhere in the current letter or the linked letter from 2015 is it spelled out just what the actual historic significance of this home is that would justify the confiscation of private property rights. Yes, historic landmark designation (especially against the owner’s wishes) is indeed the usurpation of private property rights. The question is whether such a taking is truly worth that price. While arguments can certainly be made about historic significance of structures, these cases are usually arbitrary FAR more often than they are objective, and they are occasionally salted with caprice as well. Enacting new regulations that would make it even easier to so arbitrarily confiscate private property rights will tear this wonderful community apart rather than bring us closer together.
