Memorial Stadium now in the National Register
The California Memorial Stadium, designed by John Galen Howard and completed in 1923, is finally listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
John English wrote the application at the behest of BAHA. It was submitted in September 2005 and has undergone several revisions since.
The nominated property includes the contributing structure (Memorial Stadium) and the contributing site, which includes the oak grove & other open spaces around the stadium.
The listing came as good news to all Berkeleyans currently waging a battle to save the stadium oak grove (see the post dated 10 November).
The Regents Committee on Grounds & Buildings will meet on Tuesday, 5 December 2006, at 4:30 pm, in the UCSF Mission Bay Community Center, 1675 Owens St., San Francisco, CA 94158-2265 (see map).
People wishing to address the Committee should call the Regents Secretary ahead of time at (510) 987-9220.
