Home Working with Section 106 ACHP Case Digest Summer 2004 California: Demolition of the East and West Wings of the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey
California: Demolition of the East and West Wings of the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey
Agency: U.S. Navy
In June 2003, the ACHP notified the Secretary of the Navy that it would participate in consultation on the proposal to demolish the historic wings. That same month, the Navy recognized the California Preservation Foundation and the National Trust for Historic Preservation as additional consulting parties on the project.

After several meetings that summer, the Navy developed a feasibility analysis for the renovation of the two wings. The study recommended alternative ways to address the structural deficiencies, and estimated that the wings could be rehabilitated for a cost that is comparable to new construction.
The Navy developed a Memorandum of Agreement for the rehabilitation of the buildings wings, and in May 2004, the ACHP executed the agreement.
In recognition of the Navys planning efforts and its decision to retain this significant California landmark, the California Preservation Foundation presented the Navy with an award at the organizations annual meeting in May 2004.
