The San Diego Unified School District required Historic Resource Evaluation services. Below are a few of the projects completed under this contract.
San Diego Union High School Whole Site Sensitivity Analysis – The project objective was to provide due diligence and constraints analysis services for historic-era structures and landscape features for the San Diego High School property located in downtown San Diego. The goal of the historic-era structures and landscape features analysis was to determine if any built environment resources within the project area were likely to be considered historic resources under CEQA guidelines and, if so, to determine if any built environment resources are likely to be or are potentially eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), California Register of Historic Resources (CRHR), or the City of San Diego Historical Resources Register (CSDHRR).
San Diego Union High School Whole Site Intensive Study – This study was a continuation of the Sensitivity Analysis, providing cultural resources evaluation for historical (built) resources at SDHS. Ten historic built-environment resources were documented and evaluated for eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), California Register of Historical Resources (CRHR), and the City of San Diego Historical Resources Register (CSDHRR). The evaluation included archival research, an intensive historic built-environment survey including photo documentation, completion of DPR forms with evaluations, GIS maps, and a technical report.
La Jolla Elementary Whole Site Historic Evaluation – The school is hoping to modernize the campus by renovating and constructing new facilities. PanGIS Staff conducted a site visit to record the historic-era buildings, wrote DPR forms that include a preliminary evaluation for eligibility for the NRHP, CRHR, and City of San Diego Historical Resources Register.
Supply Warehouse Historic Evaluation Services – The District wanted to place solar panels on the roof of a supply warehouse that was built in 1956.
