An advisory committee for Beaufort will discuss a number of plans to build up the historic downtown area during a meeting at 2 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, 1911 Boundary St.

The Historic District Review Board is reviewing a plan to build additional small cottages on the Beaufort Inn block, including 811 Port Republic St., which is owned by 303 Associates. The cottages would be part of the inn's lodgings, according to city historic planner Lauren Kelly.

A discussion is also planned for developing the block across the street, including 212 and 214 Scott St. and 812 Port Republic St. Coast Architects submitted designs on behalf of Beaufort Inn showing a plan to build residential units and provide parking in what is now a parking lot and the Coastal Art Supply building.

Also on the agenda is a public hearing for demolition of a home at 807 Harrington St., renovations to the Tabernacle Baptist Church at 915 Craven St., renovations to the Anchorage House at 1103 Bay St., and review of minor demolition at 1401 Duke St.
