Property owners <br />who would like to participate are responsible for the cost, installation, and maintenance of <br />the plaques. <br />The plagues display the construction date of the building, up to two lines of text, and are <br />identified with the words "Tustin Historic Register." Nomination forms are obtained from <br />the Community Development Department. Anyone, including the Commission, may <br />nominate properties. <br />On January 27, 2009, the Planning Commission approved the nomination of the property at <br />310 South Pasadena Avenue to the City's quarterly Commendation Program. As a result, <br />this property is automatically nominated to the City's Historic Register Program and provided ' <br />with a plaque paid for by the City of Tustin. <br />Pursuant to the procedures approved by the City Council on November 6, 2007, the <br />nomination was forwarded to the presidents of the Tustin Preservation Conservancy and <br />Tustin Area Historical Society.
