Mr. Spheres P. Zepatos
P. 0. Drawer 1688
St. Augustine, Florida

Dear Mr. Zepatos:

I was glad to have had the opportunity of talking with you durlag
the course of the delivery and unloading of the materials gathered in
Spain and so loag warehoused in Tampa. As you requested, I am nueta
here for your further consideration some of the problems which we foel
surround any project for the restoration and use of the Avero House
(formerly and erroneously known as the Salasar House). They are:

1. History of the hmse: a mistake made by the previous
owner designating this as the "Salasar" house has been
corrected in two studies, one by Dr. Charles Arnade and
published by this Commission (cooy of which I gave you),
and another by the staff of the Historical Society (whom I am
asking to sead you a copy by a carbon of this letter).

2. Restrictive onsing: a new soning code has just been
passed by the city, which bears both on uses of property
in the historical area and specifies a carefully defined
"St. Augustine architecture" for this area. A copy can
be had from the City Clerk.

3. Materials purchased in Spain and now in your posseesleo.
'bim~were shipped to implement the proposal to restore
"Governor SalaIar's Palace". Some might not be applspg~
to authentic restoration of the real "Avers House". In t6a0
and in all matters relating to restoration in this areaj the
services of this Commission are available to you amn ya
eoUeaues to assist you in aay fashion in ashierla asm s ald
restoration.

We are naturally very hopeful that whatever is done on this
property will be in accordance with the state's Master Plan for the
restoration of the city.

Please call upon me if I can be of any further assistance.

Cordially,
