Subject: Project Name (M07-073)                             Meeting Date: October 3, 2007


The Commission is asked to review and comment on the proposal (Attachment 1): 1. If
it is consistent with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and the goals and policies
of the Historic Preservation Chapter of the City Code; or, 2. If it is not fully consistent
with the Secretary of the Interiors Standards, due to economic hardship or economic
infeasibility, but the project is generally consistent with, and supportive of, the goals and
policies of the Historic Preservation Chapter of the City Code; or; 3. If it is not fully
consistent with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards, but is consistent with and
supportive of identified goals and policies of the general plan or applicable community
or specific plans, and the project is either generally consistent with, and supportive of,
the goals and policies of this chapter, or if not, the benefits of the project and furthering
the identified goals and policies of the general plan or applicable community plan
outweigh any impacts on achieving the goals and policies of this chapter.



Table 1: Project Information
General Plan designation: Regional Commercial and Office
Community Plan designation: Central Business District
Historic Resource designation: Landmark
Existing zoning of site: C-3-SPD
Existing use of site: Residential hotel

Background Information: The Marshall Hotel is a designated Landmark (Attachment
2), which has been in use recently as a single-room-occupancy hotel. The interior is a
relatively plain residential hotel interior. The structure to its immediate north has been
surveyed by Historic Environment Consultants as part of the City’s Expanded
Downtown Survey and the consultant’s recommendation is that the structure is not
eligible for listing in the Sacramento or California Registers (Attachment 3)

Environmental Considerations: Work in compliance with the Secretary of the
Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties can be considered exempt
from further environmental review, if no other environmental issues are raised by the
project. If not in compliance then either mitigation measures to lessen the impacts to
less than significant, or overriding considerations of the value of the project over the
impacts would be considered.

Policy Considerations: The proposed project is consistent with the land use
designation and applicable policies of the General Plan, the Community Plan, and
Smart Growth Principles. Policy issues for the review and comment are related to the
City’s adopted historic preservation policies, including the Preservation Element of the
General Plan and the standards for review of preservation development projects in the
City’s Historic Preservation Chapter of the City Code.
