Historic Preservation

As a matter of public policy, the Tustin City Council declared that “the recognition, protection and use of culturally significant structures, natural features, sites and neighborhoods within the City of Tustin is required in the interest of health, safety, prosperity, social and cultural enrichment and general welfare of City residents.” 

In recognition of its efforts in historic preservation, the City received the designation of a “Certified Local Government” (CLG) in 1991.  The National Historic Preservation Act established the CLG program to provide financial and technical assistance for the preservation of significant cultural resources.  The CLG program is designed to encourage direct participation of local governments in the identification, registration, and preservation of historic properties located within their jurisdiction.
