All parcels involved with the proposed project are located within the urban core of downtown Escondido. The Escondido Women's Club building is listed on the City's Local Register of Historic Places. In order to preserve this historic structure, the building will be relocated as part of this project. Other structures on the "library block" , with the exception of the Mathes Center, will be demolished
