The purpose of this plan was to bring together the diverse interests in historic preservation and provide a framework by which these various desires could be translated into a preservation program. To provide a basis for this program, this book discussed three additional topics. "The Heritage of Santa Cruz" is a thumbnail sketch of Santa Cruz history and the architectural styles which characterize these periods. "Identifying Significant Historical Structures, and Historical Districts" examined criteria which can be used to identify structures of architectural and historical significance. "Implementing Historical Preservation" reviewed and recommended a number of methods which can be used to preserve individual structures and areas of architectural significance. From the Old House Journal reference library.
