ICF prepared the historical context statement for California’s armories, including a national context, a state socio-political context, a state construction history context, and focused contexts for pre-World War II armory construction and post-World War II armory construction.
The project concluded with a historic context report and recommendations for a programmatic approach to evaluating more than 100 armories statewide by conducting an inventory of all pre-World War II armories and representative samples of the standardized plan armories. ICF then prepared a statewide Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan, as required under U.S. Army Regulation 200-4, which included compliance, management, and mitigation guidance for those resources identified at the training camps.
The plan incorporated inventory and evaluation results from the archaeological and architectural surveys; evaluation of both training camps and the training center; and a statewide programmatic survey and evaluation of the armories, all conducted by ICF under contracts from previous years. This contract included the preparation of individual Preservation Treatment Plans for six historic armory buildings, a geographic information systems (GIS) tool for facilitating the management of archaeological sites, and the Environmental Assessment for National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance.
