The Failure to Make the Old North a Historic District

Up one level

This folder contains two documents on making the Old North a historic district. First, in 2003, the City contracted with the firm of Roland-Nawi Associates to draft a proposal to make the Old North a State of California historic district. Carol Roland of that firm completed that draft in July of 2003. The draft is in the five parts reproduced in this folder. These are accompanied by one sheet of historical and technical detail on each of perhaps a hundred Old North houses. Over time, all these will be reproduced in the 12 face-block folders. The ones for the F Street 500s are there now. Second and following the Roland draft below, at the request of the Old North Davis Neighborhood Association Board, Valerie Vann prepared a technical report on the formation of an Old North Historic District and presented it to that Board in October of 2006.
