Table of contents What's This?
The Stockton Cultural Heritage Board Papers span the years 1977-1986, with the bulk of material falling between 1987 and 2005. The collection consists of minutes and agendas, correspondence, petitions, bylaws, site descriptions and awards granted by the board to historical Stockton locations, related photographs, and printed matter from state and national cultural heritage organizations. It also includes agreements, city codes and guidelines, environmental impact reports, historic resource inventories, plans and proposals, subcommittee documents, and material related to conferences, membership policies, and training.
The Stockton Cultural Heritage Board was created in 1966 to identify architecturally and historically significant buildings in Stockton, California, and to recommend that the city planning commission assign them preservation status according to guidelines specified in the Stockton Municipal Code. The CHB was also entrusted with the tasks of stimulating public awareness of the city’s preservation program, identifying funding sources for preservation implementation, revising the preservation ordinance in the Stockton Municipal Code, preparing a pocket guide of Stockton historical landmarks, and choosing the wording of plaques to be affixed to the city’s historic buildings.
