Description
Senate Concurrent Resolution 4 created the Heritage Task Force (HTF) in 1981 to study and recommend policies, programs, and legislation to preserve and enhance California's architectural, cultural, and historic resources. The Heritage Task Force (HTF) records consist of 2.75 cubic feet of textual material covering the period of 1978-1984. The records reflect background information, working correspondence, and the development of the final reports produced for the State Legislature regarding the status of California's cultural heritage.
Background
Senate Concurrent Resolution 4 created the Heritage Task Force (HTF) in 1981. In 1980, Congress enacted Public Law 96-515, as an amendment to the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, calling for the State Historic Preservation Officers to prepare and implement a comprehensive statewide historic preservation plan. Authored by Senator Milton Marks, Senate Concurrent Resolution 4 expressed the concern of historians, archeologists, and preservationists nationwide for a review, documentation, and preservation of cultural resources. The HTF was established to study and recommend policies, programs, and legislation to preserve and enhance California's architectural, cultural, and historic resources. The HTF's findings and recommendations were presented to the legislature in 1984 as a formal report identifying problem areas and recommending a statewide preservation policy and programs to preserve and enhance California's architectural, cultural, and historic resources.
