[this is good]

This just in from Cindy Toffelmier in the Office of Historic Preservation. Although the adobe is not listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it otta be. So let's save it, and then preserve it, y'all:


 
I would like to clarify the status of the Michael White Adobe. The
property is not listed on the National Register. It does, however, have
a "3S" status code, which means it appears to be eligible for listing on
the National Register through survey evaluation. It does not appear to
have been nominated to the National Register.       

The Office of Historic Preservation has commented on this property under
California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review. You may request a
copy of the comment letter. I am Ccing Michelle Messinger on this email,
as she is the Office of Historic Preservation's CEQA coordinator. Please
contact Michelle directly if you require a copy of the comment letter.

Sincerely,

Cynthia Toffelmier

Our girl Terri at Pasadena Heritage thinks the building is worth saving too, and has been writin' letters for the cause. She says that Mike Buhler, the Advocacy Director for the LA Conservancy, thinks the Environmental Impact Report ain't right, and he ought to know. Look, when you got all these folks sayin' an old house is worth more than a swimming pool or parking lot, they're gonna be right: 

"Thanks very much for your email and your interesting and insightful comments
about the Michael White adobe.  Pasadena Heritage shares your concern and dismay about the possible fate of the building.  I wrote a letter on PH's behalf to the San Marino Board of Education about two weeks back expressing this, and urging them to re-think their plans.  I have also had numerous conversations with Mike Buhler, the Advocacy Director for the LA Conservancy, and he feels that the EIR for the project is terribly flawed.  As you likely know, the LA Conservancy has been advocating on behalf of the adobe since this all began. 

Unfortunately, we have a major workshop for our members happening on October 27th, but still hope to be represented at the School Board meeting to express our concern and show solidarity on this with other preservation groups.

Thanks again for your email, and feel free to contact us any time!
