RE: National Register of Historic Places Nomination for Uptown Tenderloin Historic District
I am pleased to inform you that the State Historical Resources Commission (SHRC) intends to consider and take action on the nomination of the above named district to the National Register of Historic Places (National Register). Details regarding the meeting are attached. The National Register is the United States’ official list of historical properties worthy of preservation. Listing in the National Register provides recognition and assists in preserving California’s heritage. Listing in the National Register assures review of federal projects that might adversely affect the character of the historic property. In addition, as of January 1, 1993, all National Register properties are now automatically included in the California Register of Historical Resources (California Register) and afforded consideration during the State environmental review process. This includes properties formally determined eligible for the National Register. Listing in the National Register does not mean that the federal or state government will attach restrictive covenants to the property or try to acquire it. Public visitation rights are not required of owners. National Register listed properties may qualify for state and federal benefits. Additional information may be found at our website at www.ohp.parks.ca.gov.
The Tenderloin Housing Clinic and Office of Historic Preservation will hold a property owners information meeting July 10, 2008 so that property owners have an opportunity to ask questions before the nomination is heard by the SHRC. Details regarding the informational meeting are attached.
You are invited to attend the SHRC meeting when the nomination will be considered and acted upon by the SHRC. Written comments regarding the nomination may be submitted to Milford Wayne Donaldson, FAIA, State Historic Preservation Officer at the address listed above. So that the SHRC may have adequate time to consider the comments, it is requested, but not required, that written comments be received by the Office of Historic Preservation fifteen (15) days in advance of the SHRC’s meeting. Should you have any questions about this nomination or would like a copy of the nomination, please contact the Registration Unit at (916) 653-6624.
