6) hi the space provided below, brielly describe lte Iprject olr which lunding is reIuested: do not attach addition al sheets.

The building known as Government House, prominently, located on the downtown
plaza of historic St. Augustine, has a tile roof which has been temporarily
repaired several times. It has many missing tiles and needs work in several
areas underneath the tile. Many of the tiles are presently lying in the gutter
system. The elaborate copper gutter system needs to be removed, repaired,
cleaned, and reinstalled. Part of it is missing altogether, causing a leak
through the wall on the north facade. The electrical system needs extensive
work. All the old alumuinjum wiring needs to be replaced with copper wiring as
well as consolidating the many circuit breaker boxes (some working and some
not). Many of the working circuit breakers are rusting due to a flood in the
basement several years ago. There are "hot" wires running nowhere and terminat-
ing inside concrete walls. The climate control system is inadequate in a large
part of the west wing. The entire plumbing and sewer systems are also badly in
need of repair/replacement. The basement floods regularly due to breaks and
rusted out joints. A sprinkler system is needed throughout the building in order
to bring it up to required fire safety standards. One of the balconies on the
north facade is pulling away from the wall and needs to be stabilized. The
wrought iron on the courtyard balconies needs to be repaired. The handrails on
the steps going in to Government House on the south facade has pulled out of
the lowest step which is broken. This project represents the first phase of an
overall effort to increase the public access to and care of this major St.
Augustine building which occupies a site which is the historical center of
America's Oldest City. When this phase is concluded, the next phase will involve
a re-design of the inside space witl an elevator for maximum public access and
use.

Provide a 3x5 hotora i of the principal view of the property.

system with rusting circuit breakers while costly computer equipment is due to be
installed shortly. Also the building cannot be fully utilized for public use without a
sprinkler system and additional renovations. Several citations have been received from
the State Fire Marshall regarding a number of safety code violations that can all be
corrected with a sprinkler system. The plumbing system is substandard and the roof needs
major repair soon or it will require even more substantial work in the future.

cantly after this work is done.


19) Provide a brief description of the Educational benefits this project will have on the local community and the state. Please enter the current
or anticipated annual visitation in space provided below.

Visitors to St. Augustine will be drawn from the south end of St. George Street
(visible from Government House on the plaza) to visit the building and the edu-
cational museum contained therein; then encouraged to visit the rest of the his-
toric area south of the plaza. Knowledge of Florida's history would be increased
with more visitors as well as awareness of the history associated with the site
of the building as it relates to the early beginning of Florida and our nation.
With the increased public usage of Government House, additional public spaces
will be created such as a gallery for traveling exhibits and expanded public
access to preservation resource information.

20) Provide a brief explanation indicating the direct iiiipact of this project on minorities andll the (Iisabled. Include any alterations to the site that
will make the site more accessible to the public.
A feasibility study is being done on the 21,000 sq. ft. building in order to
discover ways of better using the second floor and make it more accessible to
all of the public, including those with physical disabilities. A public elevator
is planned as well. But certain structural and vital system repairs must be made
first in order to accommodate these alterations. The addition of temporary
gallery space and an elevator will allow for exhibits targeted to specialized
groups and interests including minorities and the disabled.

21) Provide a brief explanation of the Direct Economic Impact this project will have on the surrounding coninunity. Include any information
regarding number of jobs it will provide, if known.
The building has not had any major capital improvements since 1936. The vital systems in
the building threaten its safety as well as its ability to support the existing museum
and the employees of the Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board. With these systems
repaired, other renovations can take place so more public activities can be housed in
Government House in the future. It is the key property to opening up the other half of
the Nation's Oldest City south of the plaza to visitors from all over the world. The
services of many construction-related professions will be required.

22) FOR ALL ACQUISITION & DEVELOPMENT/SPECIAL CATEGORY PROJECTS:

Provide The Dates Of Original Construction: 1706 All Majior Alterations: 1759, 1936
And The Florida Site File Number, If Known: 8SJ1027

Provide a brief statement of significance for the property/site:
Government House is the site where the first Spanish governors of Florida built
their dwelling and seat of government dating back to 1598. It was destroyed sev-
eral times and rebuilt once in 1833 by Robert Mills, architect of the Washing-
ton Monument, for government use, and, most recently, in 1936 by architect Mel-
lon C. Greeley as a Post Office. In 1967, the Federal Government turned it over
to the State of Florida. It presently houses the headquarters of the Historic
St. Augustine Preservation Board and a museum. Government House is on the site
of the oldest continuous seat of government in the continental United States.
