Friends of the Willow Glen Trestle

Application for nominating the Willow Glen Trestle for listing in the California Register of Historical Resources with a Local Level of Significance, submitted Mar 3, 2017.


Our application consists of a cover letter and various forms:

Form I -- (placeholder)

Form J -- area map

Form K -- detail map

Form L -- the main body of the application: photos, historic narrative, bibliography & more.

As per required process, the forms were sent to the City for a 90-day review:
cover letter and application sent by Certified Mail on Nov. 28, 2016.

The City responded with a letter and six attachments (A, B, C, D, E, and F).
