Planning & Research

INFORMED ANALYSIS FOR DECISION MAKERS

Page & Turnbull’s Cultural Resources and Planning Studio analyzes an extraordinary range of properties. Our staff makes determinations of significance, identifies character-defining features, and develops recommendations informed by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties or Treatment of Cultural Landscapes. Research is paramount in our process, ensuring that outcomes are informed and ultimately actionable for a property owner.

HOLISTIC PLANNING AT ANY SCALE

Our planning services extend from single site evaluations to city-wide surveys and master plans, which serve local knowledge or even state and national agencies. We support strategic planning efforts that consider existing context by deep-diving into what is to help establish what can be.

TAX CREDITS, SECTION 106 & CEQA COMPLIANCE

Navigating public agency requirements for design, construction, and rehabilitation often requires a helping hand. Page & Turnbull has successfully guided multiple projects through complicated public review and building entitlement processes. We have helped projects receive federal tax credits and/or state tax credits, taking the client through consultation, application, and reviews. We are regularly involved in compliance reviews mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), or Sections 106 and 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act. We are well prepared to meet any challenge involved in these processes because, quite often, it is something we have encountered before.
