The Lakewood Planning Commission rejected an application asking for the Heideloff (or Sly) mansion to be added to the city's historical registry in February.
At its meeting Thursday, the Lakewood Planning Commission may hear an appeal over whether the Heideloff mansion should become a historic landmark. In a split decision last month, the Commission rejected an application submitted, in part, by Lakewood Heritage Advisory Board member and neighbor Jeff Weber who urged the home be given the historic designation.

As expected, the neighbors of the 100-year-old Heideloff home filed an appeal regarding the Lakewood Planning Commission’s split decision that denied their request to make the home a historic landmark. Per the city code, the applicant had 10 days to appeal. “This is the same board that will hear our appeal,” said Jeff Weber, a neighbor of the Heideloff home and advocate for saving it. “I just don’t know. We’re arguing with the same information.” Last week, the Lakewood Planning Commission voted — in a split decision — that the Heideloff property should not be designated a historic property. Neighbors told Lakewood Patch following the meeting that they planned to appeal the decision. The home at 13474 Edgewater Drive is expected to be …
