FRIENDS' Testimony:

The proposed new access ramp and stairs are an unobtrusive and thoughtful replacement of the current non-ADA compliant ramp. The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS appreciates the effort to match the new granite cladding on the stairs to the existing granite at the base of the building. Overall, this proposal will improve the existing conditions – both aesthetically and functionally – and therefore the Committee at FRIENDS supports this application.

Thank you.
