Initiate designation process for all City owned properties listed below. <br />C ' • 1 <br />This item is a follow up to the November 23, 1993 City Council decision regarding designation of <br />historic properties on the Balboa Peninsula. The decision directed staff to become more proactive <br />in the designation of historic properties by encouraging owners of historic properties to have their <br />properties designated and to amend City Council Policy K -2 to provide for City initiation of the <br />designation process. The City Council also directed staff to work with a consultant to develop a <br />uniform design for historic plaques to identify properties on the City's Historical Resister and to <br />%.ork with local historic preservation groups to expand and promote wal- -king tours of the Balboa <br />Peninsula sites. <br />Staff has drafted an amended City Council Policy K -2 to allow for direct initiation of the <br />designation process by the City Council (Attachment 1). The amended policy allows the City to be <br />proactive in the initiation of the process, but still calls for consent of the property owner prior to <br />designation. <br />Staff has also drafted a letter to the owners of potentially historic properties in the Balboa Village <br />area (Attachment 2). There are approximately a dozen properties or sites in the Balboa Village area <br />that have been inventoried but not designated for inclusion on the Historical Register. They are: <br />1. Lovell House (Private Residence), 1242 Ocean Front W., 'Gary Lovell -Owner <br />2. Site of Pacific Electric Trolley Terminal, Balboa Blvd. E. at Main St., City of Newport Beach <br />3.
