Hi im wondering why there no more permit to make and xtencion to our houses if there a lot house that have it. my house is two level building and as an old person is hard to go upstairs to use the bathroom. I seem houses that have and xtencion and dont looks like their demange the building.

There was a time when extensions were allowed. However, since we became a National Historic Site in 2003, changes to the exterior of the building are no longer allowed.

 

Some people with two story units in Atchison Village have purchased and installed chair lifts to help them get upstairs.

New General Manager responding? There are 90 National Historic Sites and "we " or Atchison Village are not one of them. A.V. was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in May of 2003. For the National Register "a property owner can do whatever they want with their property as long as there are no Federal monies attached to the property."

 Extensions were no longer permitted by the Village before 2003. And we've seen changes on exteriors since then: windows, blisters, roofs, lamps, lite tubes, etc.  
My request to the office for documentation of the source of  "changes to the exterior of building are no longer allowed" was not fruitful. Members have the right to accurate explanations and legal sources for how and why limitations and regulations are put upon them.

We have the right to know if is only the board member ideas of no more extencions. We have to be open to new ideas and make the village a better place where member can have comfort of a regular house. And i belive that some changes can increas the value.
