What happens when your home becomes deemed as “historic”? Your property rights may be in danger for one thing.
According to a press release sent out July 25 by the state agency, the City of Monterey will receive $22,500 to pay for “a historic context statement and reconnaissance historic survey for the New Monterey Residential Neighborhood and the New Monterey Business District.”
The grant will fund 60 percent of the project. To be eligible for the assistance, the City of Monterey is required to pay for the remaining 40 percent of the work — which totals $16,600 — according to Lucinda Woodward, a spokeswoman for the Office of Historic Preservation, which is a division of California State Parks.
