Planning & Development

Preserving historical resources can create a shared sense of neighborhood and cultural heritage. Towns, cities, counties, universities as well as local, state and federal parks often address historical preservation issues in unique ways. Pacific Legacy assists in such local preservation efforts by working with agencies and local communities. A few examples include: our work with Yosemite National Park to help them comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); assistance to the University of California campuses at Davis and Santa Cruz to meet California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirements; or work with the City and County of Honolulu to address Hawaii’s Environmental Impact Statement law. Other projects have included the Twelve Bridges Residential/Commercial Subdivision Project; the Sand Hill Corridor Project, Stanford; the Historic Chinatown Investigations, Honolulu, O`ahu; Kualoa Regional Park Artifact Curation, O`ahu; Ka`a`awa Beach Park Testing, O`ahu; the Makaha Beach Park Survey, O`ahu; and Poka`i Bay Monitoring, O`ahu. Working with a diversity of community/park master plans, zoning or other regulations that affect our clients’ projects, we have helped community and parks developers protect cultural resources in open space areas and nature preserves and, where protection is not possible, we have recovered important scientific information from archaeological sites.
