Potentially. The survey update included a task that the consultant review and make recommendations regarding the potential expansion of the CRD. The first area focused on the residential properties located along Yorba Street between Irvine Boulevard and First Street to the north and south (Figure 1). The other area that was surveyed is bordered by Mountain View Avenue and North C Street to the west and east, and Irvine Boulevard and First Street to the north and south (Figure 2). These areas were included in the tasks because the 1990 Historic Resources Survey considered these neighborhoods suitable for possible inclusion in the CRD or, because they were separated by First Street, suitable to be considered as separate districts. The findings for this portion of the survey work are as follows:
Forty-two (42) properties (Table 2) have been identified as potentially eligible individuals, districts, and non-parcel resources. In contrast with properties identified in previous surveys, many of these resources date to Tustin’s period of intensive postwar development between 1946 and 1976, and they are predominantly multi-family residential resources rather than single-family. Information for the newly identified resources can be found in Exhibit A - Appendix E3. The twenty-eight (28) individually eligible properties are located throughout the City and would be eligible for listing in a local, state or national historic register should the property owner decide to seek designation. Staff will make a recommendation to the Planning Commission at a future date as to whether the eleven (11) potential historic districts and three (3) potential planning districts should be designated as districts.
