Document Description
The proposed project consists of two principal activities: the rehabilitation of Buildings 100 and 200 within the Wilshire School of Continuing Education portion of the Fullerton College Campus, and construction of a new 1-story, approximately 5,000 sf addition to Building 200. Buildings 100 and 200 are considered historic structures for purposes of CEQA. With the exception of the existing window sash, rehabilitation activities call for the retention of character-defining architectural features, including restoring the exterior stucco sheathing to its original smooth finish. Due to their advanced degree of deterioration, all window sash will be replaced with new sash of essentially matching design appropriate to the building's original (1936) architectural treatment. Impacts are anticipated only in the category of cultural resources, because the buildings proposed for rehabilitation are deemed historic structures. The proposed migitation, which includes preparation of a Historic Structures Report (HSR) by a qualified historic preservation consultant at the time the schematic drawing for the project are prepared, who will document the exterior and interior photographically and with a written narrative, and will itemize all features the consultant deems to be character-defining to the buildings as historical resources. The consultant's report is expected to make design recommendations intended to safeguard the building's character-defining features, premised upon the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. The consultant's findings in the HSR are to be reviewed by the Fullerton area historic preservation organizations for their input on the aspects of the project plans that in their estimation could reasonably affect the status of the affected buildings as historical resources. The project shall conform to the recommendations of the HSR and pertinent input from the area's historic preservation organizations, as will be specified in the project's final architectural drawings and construction documents.
