The Central Waterfront survey was conducted by the Planning Department in 2000, and endorsed by the Landmarks Board and Planning Commission in 2001. In 2003, the State Office of Historic Preservation changed California Historic Resource Status Codes, eliminating several codes. This update addresses that change and updates the Central Waterfront Survey to current Status Codes.
The Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board will consider the following three actions:
1. Evaluate any owner's objection (should there be any) to the proposed California Historic Resources Status Code (CHRSC) assigned, and either endorse the proposed CHRSC, or determine based on historical evidence and evaluation criteria, an alternate status code;
2. Adopt a resolution recommending to the Planning Commission, endorsement of the updated Central Waterfront Survey (California Department of Parks and Recreation Survey Forms (DPR 523L Update forms to previously endorsed DPR 523A and 523B forms) and;
3. Endorse the document entitled – Potrero Point Historic District DPR 523D record.
