Mendocino Hotel, Mendocino – Section 106

The owners of the Hotel hired Alice to assess the historic character of the building as required by their application for a loan through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Because the lending agent was a federal agency, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) required an analysis of the undertaking’s impact on historic resources. Alice’s resulting HRE determined that the issuance of a loan would not adversely affect the historic resource.
