Historic Resource Survey and Inventory

Historic Resource Survey

The City of Fredericksburg contracted Cox|McLain Environmental Consulting, Inc. (CMEC) of Austin, Texas, to complete a historic resources survey of areas outside of the existing historic district that had not been documented before. Survey teams from CMEC were in Fredericksburg to conduct the survey during the first week of May 2018. The CMEC historians photo-documented properties from the public right-of-way and recorded details about architectural style and alterations. They will provide a new database for staff use. Each property in the survey has been given a rating of High, Medium, or Low depending on the age and integrity of the structures.

The Historic Review Board used the report to determine if the existing historic district should be expanded at their April 9th meeting. 

See the tab to the right for the following documents: Survey Report, Inventory Sheets for all properties surveyed are available here. (Appendix C) List of all inventoried properties with ratings. (Appendix B), Report Maps (Appendix A)

A public meeting was held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, at the Hill Country University Center to give property owners more information about the survey results. The meeting included a presentation by City staff and CMEC followed by time for questions and answers. Property owners were able to see what architectural rating is being proposed for each property and are welcome to give feedback. If you were unable to attend the meeting and want more information about the survey, please refer to the Inventory Sheets to see the proposed rating and if the property is in the proposed historic district expansion area.
