Eureka Valley Draft Historic Context Statement Presentation

Monday, July 10, 7pm

Chase Bank Community Meeting Room

2112 15th St (at Sanchez and Market)

Several years ago, EVNA secured a grant from San Francisco’s Historic Preservation Fund Committee to create a “historic context statement”. A historic context statement is a document that details the historic property types that are found within a neighborhood or city. It links specific property types to themes, geographic patterns, and time periods.

EVNA contracted with Elaine Stiles, a Ph.D. candidate in the History of Architecture and Urbanism at UC Berkeley, to produce the historic context statement. Elaine made an initial presentation about the project at our general membership meeting back in January 2016.

We’re excited to announce that the draft of the Eureka Valley Historic Context Statement is now available for download on SF Planning’s website! http://sf-planning.org/eureka-valley-historic-context-statement

Elaine will present the findings from the historic context statement on Monday, July 10, at 7pm, at the Chase Bank Community Meeting Room, 2112 15th St. Representatives from SF Planning’s Historic Preservation Program will also attend. The presentation will cover:

  • What is a historic context statement? What is the purpose, and how is it used?

  • Overview of the Eureka Valley Historic Context Statement findings on historic resource types in the neighborhood

  • Recommendations for future historic preservation work in Eureka Valley based on the context statement analysis

  • What comes next in the context statement process

  • Time for your questions, comments and feedback

Please see Planning’s web page for more information on the project, including an email address you can use to get more information, or comment on the project.
