Gossips just learned that Galvan Partners has withdrawn their application for a certificate of appropriateness to move the Robert Taylor House, and the public hearing, which was announced only this morning, has been cancelled.
It will be remembered that the Historic Preservation Commission denied a certificate of appropriateness to the project in June. In July, Galvan Partners appealed the HPC's decision to the Common Council. In early September, Galvan withdrew the appeal, and on September 14, Ward Hamilton, on behalf of Galvan Partners, presented a new application to the HPC for a certificate of appropriateness to move the house. Now it seems that application has been withdrawn. We can only hope that Galvan Partners has given up this bad idea.
