Cultural Resources Inventory - August 1989

The City’s preservation program was developed in response to Statewide Planning Goal 5 (Natural Resources, Scenic and Historic Areas, and Open Spaces). The city inventoried historic resources in 1976 and then again in 1988 - 1989. The most recent inventory serves as the required “plan inventory” to comply with the requirements of Statewide Planning Goal 5. Over 200 properties were inventoried and 93 were originally found to be significant and listed on the Landmark Designation List (LDL) which was adopted on March 15, 1990 (Ordinance 2000). Several properties have been removed from the Landmark Designation List or demolished and 72 properties remain.
