CEQA Evaluations

Under the California Environmental Quality Act, projects involving properties with built resources that have historic qualities must be considered for significance, or potential significance, under state law.

ARCHIVES & ARCHITECTURE and its predecessor firm, Dill Design Group, has conducted over 300 property evaluations related to development projects. These have ranged in size from small residential remodelings of listed historic properties, to large commercial districts such as San Jose’s Century Center. Once the reports have been submitted to and approved by an agency, the agency makes them public. ¬†Following is a list of some recent technical reports involving CEQA that have reviewed and approved by the agency with jurisdiction over the project.
