Community Workshop on the Mill Valley Historic Context Statement & Survey Update

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 - 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

MILL VALLEY PUBLIC LIBRARY -  CREEKSIDE ROOM

Do you have old maps or photos of Mill Valley filed away in your attic? They may be of great help to the City as it holds a public workshop Wednesday, September 20th at 6:30 pm on the development of a Historic Context Statement for Mill Valley. This is an established evaluative tool that provides information needed to make informed planning decisions, prioritize preservation goals, evaluate potential historic resources, and provide a narrative of a community's history.
 
Your relevant photos, maps, documents, and other materials will help the City, working with Page & Turnbull, to identify themes and patterns in Mill Valley’s physical development and the  events and people that influenced it over time. Your materials can be scanned during the workshop and returned to you that evening. Once complete, the Historic Context Statement will help homeowners, architects, City staff and review bodies identify, evaluate, and preserve historic resources.
 
As part of this work program, Page and Turnbull will also be re-surveying the City’s “Partial List” of historic structures to update their status.
 
A follow-up public workshop will be scheduled later in the Fall to review the draft Statement before the City considers it for adoption.
