INFORMATIONAL UPDATE:  Staff update on 919 stair tower repairs

Senior Planner Ricci and Construction Manager Fisher explained the situation with tiles on the 4th and 5th levels of the stair tower falling off and creating a safety hazard.  Staff stated that the solution involves removing the tiles, adding a waterproof coating to the wall surface, and recoating the tower with acrylic stucco.  Staff noted that the update was provided to the ARC because of the prominence and visibility of this part of the building.
