CULTURAL RESOURCES

Federal and State historic preservation laws (NHPA/CEQA/PRC 5024) regulate the identification, evaluation, registration, and protection of California’s irreplaceable archeological and historic resources. Projects seeking federal, state, or local approvals may be required to evaluate whether any of these resources are located within the physical boundaries of the project. We can provide you with the studies, research consultations, and reports you need to comply with these regulations and satisfy any public comments.

Specific Services Offered

  • Site Surveys – Evaluating cultural resources begins with an on-site pedestrian survey by a consultant experienced with archeological studies.
  • Record Searches – We search through historic records relevant to your project to determine whether any significant events may have occurred, or structures built.
  • Tribal Consultation – Cultural resource compliance includes notifying local American Indian tribes with an historic interest in the area where the project is located to allow them the opportunity to comment or otherwise participate.
  • Report Preparation – We can prepare the appropriate reports necessary to approve your project.
