State awards $40,000 for historic property survey

The city of Davis has won a $40,000 federal grant to conduct a survey of historic properties, California’s Office of Historic Preservation announced Wednesday.

The grant money will be used to survey all Davis buildings constructed before 1976. Additionally, information from three previous surveys will be updated and consolidated.

This will allow the city and the public to access property information quickly. It also will provide information and reduce costs for owners of old properties who wish to remodel.

Currently, owners of old properties must pay for a private historical survey of their building before conducting major renovations. Private historical surveys can cost thousands of dollars.

The survey also will quantify Davis’ historical resources. It will be conducted by local volunteers, who will photograph historic buildings, help with research and prepare report forms.

Davis was awarded the grant through the Certified Local Government program. This program encourages local governments to take part in the “identification, registration and preservation of historic properties,” according to a news release.

The Office of Historic Preservation’s mission “is to preserve and enhance California’s irreplaceable historic heritage,” the report said.

For more information about the survey, contact Ike Njoku, Davis historical resources manager, at 530-757-5610, ext. 7230, or [email protected] To learn more about the Certified Local Government program, visit www.ohp.parks.ca.gov.
