FROM: DAVID SCOTT k-
SUBJECT: RESPONSE TO MAY 25 MEMO, PAREDES/DODGE FACADE WORK
The decision about what facade colors developed out of
historic research and consultation with staff and trustees. On
Feb. 22 I wrote and distributed a memo describing the proposed
facade treatment (see attached). If anyone had problems with the
colors or the amount of work to be done on the facade they had
ample time to respond to me.
The grey color for the trim is based on Mr. Welsh's historic
paint analysis and is part of the City of St. Augustine's paint
color brochure (see attached). The body being painted St.
Augustine White is conjecture as is the application of a
I proposed a Kings Bakery Black zocalo because that is the
only documented zocalo color in St. Augustine. Furthermore we
already have several buildings displaying red zocalos and I
thought a change would be appropriate.
The impli cat i on of your memo is that the decision
concerning the colors for the Paredes/Dodge house was not
reviewed. A staff meeting would have been an appropriate place to
review such a decision, but in this case a researched proposal
with ample response time was the utilized method.
