Abstract

California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) proposes to demolish three historic on- campus residential buildings known as the "Cal Poly Cottages." Cal Poly hired Crawford Multari & Clark Associates (CMCA) to conduct the environmental assessment of this proposed project. CMCA, in turn, contracted with JRP Historical Consulting (JRP) to prepare this Historical Resource Inventory and Evaluation Report for the historic residences.

The purpose of this document is to comply with state environmental regulations as they pertain to the protection of historic architectural resources. This study was conducted in accordance with Section 15064.5(a)(2)-(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines. Under CEQA, the resources in this report have been evaluated in accordance with Section 15064.5(a)(2)-(3) of the CEQA Guidelines using the criteria outlined in Section 5024.1 of the California Public Resources Code. Cal Poly has also required that the resources be evaluated in accordance with the standards used for evaluating historic resources under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). Therefore, this report also addresses the potential for these resources to qualify for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
