San Diego to Host OHP and CPF Training Workshops

Feb 26, 27, & 28th

The State Office of Historic Preservation, the California Preservation Foundation, and SOHO will be sponsoring a series of three workshops in partnership with the City of San Diego. The workshops will be held on Thursday, February 26, Friday, February 27, and Saturday, February 28, 2004. As an event co-sponsor, SOHO is seeking volunteers to staff the workshops. Tasks include assisting with registration and handouts, audio-visual equipment, food service, room set-up and break-down, and general crowd control. Contact a SOHO Volunteer Coordinator at if you wish to help with the workshops.

The Thursday workshop will focus on historic surveys from the perspective of the end user - cities. The workshop will demonstrate new technologies developed by the Cities of Riverside and Ontario. The workshop is intended for those who work with historic properties. A city's Planning, Development Services and Code Enforcement departments are likely participants as are property management and redevelopment officials, members of Historic Resources Boards, and consultants or neighborhood groups who produce surveys. This training is mandatory for consultants who wish to perform or submit work to the City of San Diego. The day-long workshop will be held on Thursday, February 26, at the Taylor Branch of the San Diego Public Library, 4275 Cass Street, Pacific Beach. Contact Cynthia Howse at (916)653-6624 at the State Office of Historic Preservation for program details and cost.

The Friday workshop on the Secretary of the Interior's Standards features Tim Brandt, Architect at the State Office of Historic Preservation; Wayne Donaldson, FAIA; Ione Stiegler, AIA; Peyton Hall, AIA, President of the California Preservation Foundation; Jeff Samudio, AIA; and Gloria Scott, Chief, Architectural History Specialty Branch, CALTRANS. They will lead workshop participants through a series of case-based exercises. Participants will learn how to apply the four Standards and how to evaluate new construction in historic districts or new additions to historic properties. Held at the Mission Valley Branch of the San Diego Public Library, 2123 Fenton Parkway, the day-long workshop includes a site visit to Old Town San Diego State Historic Park where Park Superintendent Bob Wohl will lead participants in a hands-on exercise to recognize character-defining features of historic properties.

The Saturday workshop on Cultural Landscapes will be held in the Santa Fe Room at the Balboa Park Club in Balboa Park. Guest speakers Dr. Ken Breisch, Director of Programs in Historic Preservation at USC, and Dan Marriot, Director of the Rural Heritage Program at the National Trust, will provide an overview of Cultural Landscapes from a national perspective, focusing on the National Park Service definitions of cultural, ethnographic, agricultural, vernacular and industrial landscapes. Local case studies will be presented. An optional tour of Balboa Park will complete the program. For additional information on the Friday and Saturday workshops, contact the California Preservation Foundation offices at (415) 495-0349.
