Downtown Historic Preservation Information

The Downtown Precise Plan included a comprehensive update of historic resources in the Downtown area. A Summary Report has been prepared to document the findings.

In addition, DPR 523 forms have been prepared for two areas that were found to be eligible for recognition as historic districts, along with 36 properties found to be eligible for recognition as individual historic resources or as contributing resources within the two districts.  DPR Forms are informational tools used to record and evaluate historic resources.  They are often the first step in nominating properties as California Historical Landmarks, California Points of Historical Interest, or California Registered Historic Resources.  Please note that completion of a DPR Form alone does not change the historic status of the property.

Draft DPR forms are provided below.  In the 1970s, the City of San Rafael prepared DPR forms for about 50 additional properties in the Downtown area.   Please contact the San Rafael Community Development Department for information on these forms.  They may be updated in the future as resources allow.
