A. Cultural Resource Survey of 13.4 acre site for 139 unit apartment complex AKA Lofts on Continental.
Address:  5331 E Cortland Ave
Assessor's Parcel Number: 113-37-001E 
Property Owner:  SELNA RAYMOND JOSEPH TRUSTEE ; MONGINI MICHAEL TRUSTEE - Miramonte Homes contractual interest.
Applicant:  Cornerstone Environmental for Mogollon Engineering
City Staff:  Mark Reavis HPO

Concur with HPOs request for a Cultural Resource Study Review "Letter Report" and accept the report and its conclusions. The report is for a site survey of a proposed residential project with 139 apartment style for rent units on 13.4 acres consisting of 2 story apartments. NOTE: report has determined the likelihood of Cultural Resources. The HPC shall review the findings of the "Redacted Report" along with the HPOs determinations and recommended actions.
The HPO reviewed the findings of the Cultural Resource Survey and the non-redacted content report. The report notes two isolated occurrences of prehistoric native cultural evidence. The non-redacted report reviewed by the HPO notes many known and recorded sites within the general area. With such information and as noted in the report there is a high potential of inadvertent discovery of significant archeological resources present in the subsurface areas of the site. The HPO recommends acceptance of the Cultural Resource Study "letter report" as presented and its conclusions. The HPO further recommends that the CRS is the initial step in compliance with 10-30.30.050 and that additional reporting and artifact recovery may be required. The HPO recommends that on-site archeological monitoring be a requirement of the developments approval for ground disturbing activities; and the project developer shall submit documentation of a contract (or letter of commitment to contract with) with a qualified cultural resource firm for on-site ground disturbance monitoring as a provision of project approval.

  Josh Edwards: There were isolated occurrences found and there are sites in the surrounding area. There is a concern that there may be undiscovered sites beneath the surface in this location. Asked Mark to outline next step. 
Mark Reavis: Caitlin Stewart concluded that careful progressive testing was needed rather than monitoring, which is what was first proposed.
David Hayward: Clarified that testing is in place of continuous monitoring. 
Mark Reavis: A Phase 1 Cultural Resource Study is the appropriate documentation to provide the findings of additional testing.
Josh Edwards: Following the State guidelines, the additional testing is prudent in lieu of monitoring.
Charlie Webber: Is this investigation on City of Flagstaff land?
Josh Edwards This is on private land within the City of Flagstaff.
Mark Reavis: Redacted report has been forwarded to the commissioner.
  Moved by David Hayward, seconded by Jill Hough Approve the letter report with conditions that additional testing be done in accordance with the Phase 1 Cultural Resource Study
  Vote: 6 - 0
  Sara Dechter:  Additional correspondence from the applicant on the details will be added to the minutes
A. The Draft Carbon Neutrality Plan (A presentation to the Heritage Preservation Commission)
Information Only.
  Ramon DC Altorre presented the Flagstaff Carbon Neutrality Plan.

B. AZSITE Ad Hoc Advisory Committee Update
HPO involvement in improving Local CLGs access to usable initial information on Cultural Resource within their community.
  Mark Reavis is participating in the AZSite ad hoc committee for the State Historic Preservation Office.  Mark is one of only two members who is not an archeologist. He is advocating for CLG access to the database. Mark's recommendation for CLG access to AZSite is going to the main committee,  and a recommendation to recognize the public on the importance of historical sites without disclosing location.
C. Standards & Enforcement
Presented for HPC edification only, no actions to be taken.
  Mark Reavis presented on Standards and Enforcement in the Heritage Preservation program
