Historic Resource Inventory Update
Santa Monica Citywide Survey Update
In 2016-2017, the City of Santa Monica will be conducting an update to the City’s Historic Resources Inventory. Working with a consultant team of Architectural Resources Group and Historic Resources Group, the project will consist of the creation of a comprehensive Citywide Historic Context Statement, and a Citywide Historic Resources Survey that will be used to update the City’s Historic Resources Inventory. The context statement and survey will consider properties constructed through 1977. The team will look at all property types – residential (single- and multi-family), commercial, industrial, and institutional (civic buildings, schools, social clubs, etc.), as well as historic sites and landscapes – and will evaluate properties for potential architectural, social, and cultural significance. The team will be conducting outreach throughout the project, both to keep the community apprised of the project status and solicit input on potentially significant properties and neighborhoods. Email us at email@example.com to be added to the mailing list for community outreach meetings, or watch this space for updates.
