SAN CLEMENTE : City Seeks to Update Historical Status

April 12, 1993|ANNA CEKOLA

The city has been accepted into the state-sponsored Certified Local Government Historic Preservation Program, municipal officials said.

The city--known as the Spanish Village by the Sea--now becomes eligible to apply for grant funding through the State Office of Historic Preservation.

Last week, the City Council asked planners to apply for a grant that would cover the cost of updating San Clemente's list of historic homes and businesses.

The survey would include the analysis of up to 450 structures built in the 1920s and 1930s in the Spanish Colonial Revival style championed by city founder Ole Hanson.

Volunteers from the Community Design Commission and Spanish Village Heritage Group and city planners would help with the survey, according to the grant application.

The survey would verify the significance of the structures, promote the community's cultural heritage and "build consensus regarding historical preservation," the application said.
