As the El Cortez's renovations continue, they are replacing most of the electrical and now are replacing all the windows on the El Cortez. Some history buffs in town emailed me, worried that doing this could remove the El Cortez from the list of registered historic landmarks.

The El Cortez is not bound or required to preserve the building's history, but it would be a nice thing to do in the process of renovating it.

Apparently they did not have the required permit to do this, the city found out, and put a stop-work-order in. Submitting a permit to replace the windows would have triggered a Historic Resources Commission review, which is now going to occur thanks to some keen eyes on the building.

Quick blurb: I noticed a new alcohol license on tap for Wednesday's city council meeting for 50 North Sierra Street, Suite 103, which was JB Mapes' former location which has been closed a while. Anyone know what might be going in this space? The business is unnamed in the license application, only that Anthony Kranz is applying for it and it will be a restaurant and bar.

UPDATE: My snoops are telling me Anthony Kranz has two new businesses registered.....Ten & H2O with Bryan Bjork (address at 50 Sierra # 103), and High Desert Pizza and Sports with Sandra Saville.
