Per your latest meeting notes we have included comments and attached the downtown design
guidelines and east Lawrence neighborhood revitalization plan for referencing There were a few
statements in the meeting minutes that we feel were misrepresentations of the guidelines and
ELNAplan We thought it would be most appropriate to respond with clarifications and attach
these documents so that there is no confusion as to which guidelines and what plans to which we
are referring Please let me know if you have any questions

Scott McCullough shared a copy of your meeting notes from the ELNA board meeting at the
beginning of the month I have one correction that I would like to submit to you Item No 8 states
that the developers are talking to Wild Oats about a market on the ground floor I wanted to let
you know that this is not true Wild Oats has not been contacted I believe that confusion came
about in the meeting and the note taker inadvertently wrote it down not hearing that it is not the
case Thanks

15 October 2011
Planning Department
P O Box 708
Lawrence Kansas 66044
To Whom It May Concern
We write to express sincere and serious concerns regarding the proposed use
of the open lots on the southeast corner of 9th and New Hampshire Streets as
a Marriott Towne Place Extended Stay Hotel and Restaurant We are the owners
of the Bromelsick House at 923 Rhode Island Street which backs up directly
to the southeastern corner of the proposed structure Although we appreciate
the commercial interest in further economic development of the downtown
region we have a number of concerns regarding the advisability of this
Imposing structure The huge hulking structure that is proposed
will affect the surrounding area of the city only in sincerely negative
ways Specifically the streetscape of the North Rhode Island National
Historical District will be affected negatively behind the 1 2 story
residential houses that make up the District will be a much higher modern
structure that will change the view and the environment that is perceived
from the District From the other side the Lawrence Downtown Historical
District will similarly be affected the historical structures that make up
this District are 2 3 stories tall with little or nothing as massive as the
proposed structure We point out that the block in question was originally
residential in nature and has never held a large commercial structure
previously until the Lawrence Arts Center was built
Effects on neighborhood The area immediately to the east of the
proposed construction is an extremely active focus of our neighborhood
activities and to a surprising degree on the alley side rather than on the
street side Alley focused activities include the Social Services League
the Percolator and the Simply Bee Massage Therapy salon each of which is
seen as East Lawrence local and endemic With a huge and imposing
structure literally on top of these activities we anticipate that these
activities would end and the vibrant nature of our neighborhood would be
diminished significantly This is not to mention the effects on light and
afternoon illumination of back yards gardents etc
Supermarket for whom The In A Pinch Market that is planned for
the street level of the proposed development meets the needs only of the
residents of the hotel snacks soft drinks and not much more East
Lawrence and North Lawrence badly needs a medium sized supermarket
presently the nearest supermarket is at 18th and Massachusetts far from
this sector of the city The market that is proposed however in no way
meets the needs of the neighborhood and adds nothing useful to the overall
life of the neighborhood This proposal s inward focus illustrates the
degree to which the proposed development is not integrated into the East
Lawrence context and rather is insular and isolated from the neighborhood
that it will affect
Noise pollution The Lawrence Arts Center is already a tax on the
quiet of the North Rhode Island National Historical District its HVAC system
can be heard quite loudly from our bedroom windows which has frequently
woken us up The trash pickup which for the Arts Center is light compared
to that of a hotel and restaurant is also a source of daily early morning
disturbance The mechanical area high on the northeast corner of the
building proposed would further augment these noise pollution problems and
take them right into the upper floors of several additional houses in the
northern half of the 900 block of Rhode Island Street We see this as a
considerable imposition on the Rhode Island Street neighborhood and one
that is negative in every way We are not even mentioning the smells and
potential problems with vermin that a restaurant s trash facilities will
Effects of large scale construction on existing structures We are
concerned that the deep excavations planned as part of the proposed
development may have negative consequences for residential structures on the
Rhode Island Street side In the construction of the Lawrence Arts Center
we saw our carriage house show its first signs of serious structural
problems We brought the changes to the attention of the City of Lawrence
but no action was taken to fix the damage done We are concerned that the
proposed development will similarly take no action to avoid or fix any such
Oversaturation of large high end hotels We are concerned that the
developers who propose this building are overestimating the size of the
Lawrence high end hotel market Lawrence had only the Eldredge Hotel and the
Springhill Suites on the riverfront until recently However just 2 years
ago the Oread Hotel was constructed which is an enormous number of rooms
added to the market Now the present proposal would increase the number of
rooms still more We see considerable risk that the high end hotel market in
Lawrence will saturate and will see significant business activity only on
game weekends Having big buildings downtown is bad enough but having
inviable businesses in big buildings would be much worse To this point we
ask you to consider the empty half of the ground floor of the 7th and New
Hampshire Streets building constructed several years ago quite simply the
Lawrence market may not be large enough to nurture so many new business
initiatives
We are highly concerned that this proposed development will go forward for
the reasons listed above and others Quite simply the proposed development
is a massive structure that will affect negatively much of the matrix in
which it is proposed to be situated We have seen residential proposals for
improving houses on Rhode Island Street in ways that were very respectful to
the neighborhood denied by the Historical Resources Commission those
proposed changes which were denied were nothing short of negligible in
comparison to the proposal that you are presently considering
The East Lawrence neighborhood is a significant element of the Lawrence
community in terms of history culture economic activity and cityscape
This proposed development is we surmise offered to the Planning Department
by people from outside of the neighborhood for their own benefit and with
little thought to or care for the well being of the neighborhood itself
We urge the Planning Department to weigh carefully the need for this
development that is proposed While economic development is always
attractive to a city such as Lawrence we assert that Lawrence can be kept
vibrant and active only by careful and thoughtful development This proposed
development is neither careful nor thoughtful so we urge you to deny the
request that is being made of you
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you desire any further
information or comment
Very sincerely
Andrew Townsend Peterson and Rosa Salazar de Peterson

The building proposed is out of line for this neighborhood in height placement and what it will do to the
businesses and homes that are already in this neighborhood The group who is proposing this building do
not care for the neighborhood or the customers that use this area The building will over shadow the area
in looks and height While building there project to the southwest corner of this intersection they have
blocked the entrance to the business in the ally to the east for unreasonable time even though they have the
area to use for their project As an example I have not been able to get into the Social Service League in a
reasonable time With this attitude I do not thing they would be good neighbors either

151 11 900 New Hampshire Street
Lot 72 on New Hampshire Street one lot south of the southeast corner lot was
purchased by the AME church prior to August 21st 1863 Lizzie E Goodnight s
1903 KU master thesis states that the foundation trenches had been dug for the
erection of their 1st church but instead became a burial site for murdered
troops The unmustered recruits had been bivouacked across the street now the

Subject mass grave at 9th and NH
I have heard that just prior to Quantrill s raid the St Luke AME
Church had dug a foundation for its church building at 9th and NH and
that 20 or so Union soldiers perhaps African American soldiers who had
been killed in the raid were dumped into the hole for the foundation and
buried there for all eternity
Researching the records in the Douglas County Register of Deed s office I
discovered that book H p 62 shows lot 72 New Hampshire street was purchased
by the AME trustees with the contract dated August 8 1863 rec d Aug 11

MR EDITOR We have some sixty accessions to the church since the
fiendish raid made by Quantrell on the 21st of August last At that time the
membership of our charge numbered 139 on our return after the raid I found
56 members all told The members were so terror stricken that it was by the
greatest effort that I could prevail on them to remain
We had secured a lot and quarried and hauled very near enough stone to
put up the wall of a building 34 by 50 ft secured a very large amount of
subscriptions and had 171 50 in the bank which was taken at the time of the
The St Luke AME church building was finally erected at 900 N Y street

to August Bromelsick on Nov 14th 1865 for 700
