Mills Act Agreement

13 Dec

No, no, no, no, Local historical name is required before you can enter into a Mills Act agreement. Even if your property is listed on the National Register and/or the California Registry, but is not historically classified by the City of San Diego, your property is not authorized for the Mills Act. The provisions of the Mills Act are set by national law. The initial duration of the agreement is ten years. The contract is automatically renewed each year for an additional year and the expiry date is changed, so that there are still 10 years left during the term of the contract. The agreement will therefore remain in force indefinitely, unless one of the parties is informed of the termination of automatic renewals. If one of the parties listens to the automatic renewal, the contract expires on the current expiry date of the contract, which would be about ten years after the notification of the notification. If you own a property listed as historic by historical resources Board and you have registered a Mills Act agreement on your land, the benefits of the Mills Act are the property. In this way, the new owners “inherit” the benefits and responsibilities of the agreement. The jurisdiction of the Mills Act agreements is defined by national law and all other requirements defined by the local Mills Act. As a general rule, the owner of the land is required to maintain and preserve the land in accordance with the standards of the Minister of the Interior. All other local bylaws on historic sites in the City of San Diego Municipal Code are also applicable.

Yes, except inside the rehabilitation areas. The Mill Act is not uniformly permitted for all buildings located in these areas, especially for commercial construction. They should check with staff in the rehabilitation area concerned to see if they will approve an agreement on the Mill Act. Once the application is complete, the Historical Resources Commission will review the implementation of the Mills Act and make its recommendations to City Council. If approved by the City Council, the Mills Act contract will then be signed by the owner of the qualified historic land and the City of Whittier. All Mills Act contracts are valid for an initial term of at least 10 years. However, the term of the contract is automatically extended by an additional year on each anniversary date of the contract signed, until one of the parties gives a notification of non-renewal. In fact, the Mills Contract becomes a 10-year indeterminate contract. All work on the qualified historic property should be roughly equivalent to or greater than the property tax savings that were offset by the Mills Act.
