Size: Survey of 33 Resources

The City of Lake Oswego, Oregon retained Peter Meijer Architect, PC (PMA) to update the City’s Intensive Level Survey and database forms for a minimum of 33 properties on the City’s Landmark Designation List, which included the preparation of Architectural & Historical Significance narratives required for each survey. All work was completed in accordance with SHPO’s current “Guidelines for Historic Resource Surveys in Oregon.”

PMA recorded property characteristics for the selected properties that included: the location, construction date, original use, architectural style, plan type, primary and secondary siding materials and height, and made a determination of eligibility (eligible/significant, eligible/contributing, not eligible/non-contributing, or not eligible/out of period) for each surveyed property. This data, along with latitude and longitude information and digital photographs, was entered into the Oregon Historic Sites database. All research emphasized the verification and documentation of historic facts.
