May is Preservation Month across the nation. Communities all over the country are celebrating their unique heritage. MainStreet, the Historical Association, the Historic Resources Commission together with the City are celebrating “This Place Matters,” historic places that are meaningful in Coronado and we are fortunate to have many.

Some of the activities during the month have included a Proclamation from the City Council declaring May as Historic Preservation Month, the distribution of plaques to recent historically designated homeowners and a Historic Home tour on Mother’s Day, May 12.

On Thursday May 30, there will be a free Historic Preservation Symposium in the Lecture Hall of the Coronado Historical Association, 1100 Orange Avenue. Light refreshments will be served from 5:30 to 6 p.m. and the program will begin at 6 p.m. We are happy to announce that noted architect Ione Steigler, AIA, will be giving a presentation “Reconstructing the Past: Get into the nitty gritty of the craft, how we put together the puzzle pieces of history and building chronology by peeling back the layers to tell a building’s story using our projects like the restoration of the Sikes Adobe, Warner-Carrillo, Georgia Street Bridge, and the Mission Beach Boardwalk.”

In addition, Associate Planner Tricia Olsen will be describing the City’s Historic Resource Ordinance and the process to apply for Historic Designation and Mills Act tax incentives.

Seating is limited so reservations are highly recommended at CoronadoHistory.org or call 619-435-7242.
