The Navy conducted inventories of historic properties at and within a 2-mile radius of the NAVWAR Old Town Campus (OTC). These studies determined that there is a National Register of Historic Places (NRHP)-eligible historic district within OTC. This district, called the “Consolidated Aircraft Plant 2 Historic District” is eligible for listing due to its association with World War II and the Cold War. The studies also determined that the height of new buildings under Alternatives 2 through 5 would affect the visual setting of 19 historic properties located within a half-mile of OTC.
The Navy notified the California State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) that it is assessing potential effects to historic resources from the proposed action alternatives under the authority of the Naval Base Point Loma Programmatic Agreement. Under the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106, the Navy is seeking public comment on the potential adverse effects and suggested mitigation concurrently with the Draft EIS 60-day public comment period.
The Navy will develop a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that proposes measures to mitigate adverse effects to all historic properties in consultation with the SHPO, Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and interested parties.
The Navy held a public comment period from May 14, 2021 to August 12, 2021 to accept public comments on the potential adverse effect to historic properties.View the Federal Register Notice View the 30-day Extension Notice
