The amendments include:

  1. Modify Criterion A to read: It exemplifies or reflects special elements of the City’s military, cultural, social, economic, political, aesthetic, or engineering history.
  2. Specify that designation under Criterion B, for association with a person or event significant in local, state, or national history, can only be used for one property. In other words, one significant individual should not be used to designate multiple properties.
  3. Modify Criterion C to read: It possesses distinctive characteristics of an architectural style, and has not been substantially altered.
  4. Add the following new definition to clarify Criterion D with regard to “notable work”: “Notable work” means an important or remarkable example from the body of work of a professional trained as a builder, designer, architect or landscape professional. The subcommittee noted that the definition presumes that all works by the professional are not presumed to be “Notable works.” “Notable works” is a subset of all works.
  5. Reduce the number of designation criteria required to be met in order to be designated as a Historic Resource from two to one.
  6. Allow property owners to apply for a Determination of Historic Significance and a Mills Act Agreement with one application, and one public hearing by the Historic Resource Commission.

Modify the current process for determining historic significance to combine the nomination and Notice of Intent to Demolish review processes into one Determination of Historic Significance Review, with a flat fee to be paid by the property owner and a Historic Research Report to be prepared by a third-party consultant selected by the City of Coronado.
