Principal Investigator provided project oversite and managed staff for historic evaluations of four structures and surrounding redevelopment area. Mr. Mengers provided an assessment of eligibility for listing on the California Register of Historic Resources (CRHR) and the City of Escondido’s Mitigation Measures. He managed the background research which included a record search at the South Coastal Information Center and property title search with the Offices of the San Diego County Assessor, Recorder and Tax Collector.
Native American outreach, NAHC Sacred Lands File Search, and a follow-up was performed. During the site visit, he collected information about the property necessary for preliminary site evaluation and completing DPR forms. An archaeological survey of any open ground was conducted.
The PanGIS team prepared a DPR form for the structure based on the site visit and background historic research. The final report discussed the survey and assessment and will indicate if there is potential for significant impacts. For the archaeological portion of the study, it included language indicating the nearby Escondido Creek area being of cultural importance to both Kumeyaay and Luiseño people and recommendations for monitoring, along with survey results, which are expected to be negative given the developed nature of the study site.
