TO: MR. LIPPY

FROM: DAVID SCOTT, RESEARCH & CONSTRUCTION DIRECTOR PJ

SUBJECT: SECURITY AT THE ARRIVAS HOUSE



I would like to review what we discussed today in relation to the

improvements that you asked to make dealing with security at the

Arrivas House.



I though your solutions were well thought out and will improve

your security situation. You plan to install two motion

detectors with automatic lights on the outside of the Arrivas

House under the balconies. I asked that these be placed where

they will have a minimum visual affect on the building (up under

the joists) and that their installation have a minimum affect on

the historic fabric of the building. I suggested and you agreed

that you could run the wire stapled to the joists and painted to

match. We will take care of the painting on the exterior of the

building.



You also ran intrusion alarms on the doors and windows of the

building wired to a battery charged alarm. Furthermore you

installed a monitored motion detector alarm. Both of these

systems seem to have a minimal intrusive affect on the interior

space and should be an effective protection system.


MEMO
















You also asked if bars on the windows would be appropriate. I

feel that they would not be. There is no historical precedent in

Colonial St. Augustine for such a security method for iron was

too costly for such a use. Iron bars would produce an

unacceptable visual intrusion upon the character of Historic St.

Augustine. You agreed with me and said you would not install

bars.



I feel that the steps you have taken will be sufficient and thank

you for 'going over the problem and your solutions with me before

embarking on your plan.



Thank you again and if I can be of any further assistance please

contact me.
