Note the consultants DRAFTS have recommended that the properties are not eligible, but with an “eligibility status code” for all three buildings as “6L” vs. “6Z”. These codes correspond to the following:
California Historical Resource Status Code
- 6 – Not Eligible for Listing or Designation as specified:
- 6L – Determined e=ineligible for local listing or designation through local government review process; may warrant special consideration in local planning.
- 6Z – Found ineligible for NR, CR or Local designation through survey evaluation.
If you have any information that would aid in this review, or that you feel the consultants or Preservation Director should be aware of relative to these properties history or eligibility for listing in either the California Register or the Sacramento Register, either individually or possibly as a district, please provide your comments to Meredith Gress, Preservation Intern by 8am, Wednesday, August 17th.
