What does it mean if a property is included in a historical survey?
Properties included in a historical survey become part of an inventory of building stock that is used for planning purposes. Reconnaissance Surveys are information gathering exercises and do not regulate, designate or otherwise affect ownership status or property use. Inclusion in a Reconnaissance Survey may trigger a more intensive survey, as described below. Intensive Surveys evaluate specific properties for historical significance and may or may not result in a formal designation, a determination of eligibility for designation, or a determination of historical significance for purposes of CEQA.
