Coronado Asks the Community to Help Answer: “What is Historic?”

The City will hold a public workshop on Thursday, September 12, to kick off the City’s Historic Context Statement and Survey project, which will help guide what Coronado homes and other structures may be deemed historic.

The City’s Community Development Department and a consulting firm invite the community to help with the process. Input from residents will help formulate a “Historic Context Statement,” which will be used to inform a survey of potentially historic resources in Coronado as part of the City’s Historic Preservation Program.

The workshop will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., in the Nautilus Room at the Coronado Community Center.

“This is a whole new way of determining what is historic in Coronado,” said City Manager Blair King. “At the end of the process, some older properties will be excluded from further consideration as historic. This will allow the City to focus attention on the remaining properties to determine their historic eligibility.”

City staff and the consultant firm will make a presentation at the meeting and find out how residents answer the question about what is historic. The consultant and staff will consolidate the input to better describe what the community as a whole considers important to Coronado’s history. The resulting survey will guide property owners, the Historic Resources Commission and ultimately the City Council in better preserving the Coronado community.
