Local State and National Register Nominations

Marsh and Associates can assist clients with the preparation of local and historic district nominations, State Office of Historic Preservation, Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) 523 Forms and with individual and historic district nominations to the National Register of Historic Places.

Under the California Register, an historical resource must be significant at the local, state or national level, under one or more of the following criteria.

1. It is associated with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of local or regional history, or the cultural heritage of California or the United States, or

2. It is associated with the lives of persons important to local, California, or national history; or

3. It embodies the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, region, or method of construction, or represents the work of a master, or possesses high artistic values; or

4. It has yielded, or has the potential to yield, information important to the prehistory or history of the local area, California, or the nation.

The National Register criteria are substantially similar to the California Register criteria. Both programs require evaluation of a property pursuant to seven aspects of Integrity. Integrity is the ability of a property to convey its significance.

Recent local landmark nominations include Saint Brigid Church on 2151 Van Ness Avenue and 557 Ashbury Street at Haight Street. National Register nominations currently underway include the University of California Extension Campus at 55 Laguna Street and Saint Francis of Assisi Church in North Beach in San Francisco.
