How will the architectural style guides and DPR forms be used?

The historic survey update document includes six (6) architectural style guides specifically designed for Tustin.  These architectural style guides were selected since these are the six (6) most prominent architectural styles in Tustin’s historic resources inventory.  Staff will use the style guides when analyzing the compatibility of proposed modifications to historic resources, when preparing Certificates of Appropriateness for improvements, and for educational purposes.  Follow the links below to see the six most common architectural styles and their characteristics in the City of Tustin.

As an important land use planning tool, staff, the Planning Commission, and the City Council will use the survey to make informed decisions related to historic resources, guide homeowners and developers, develop and implement land use policies, perform environmental review pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), consider adaptive reuse of existing resources, and educate the public in understanding and in appreciation of the community’s history.   

The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) forms are primary records of each identified historic resource and can be used by property owners to nominate their properties to the California or National Register of Historic Places.  Staff will use the DPR forms to inform and guide the review of potential alterations of historic buildings. The updated 2020 DPR forms combined the information that was contained in the prior DPR forms prepared during 1990 and 2003 surveys.
