By that time the City hopes to have polled the residents of North Encinitas (between Foothill and Greystone) to gauge the interest in creating a historic district along that portion of the street. The owners of the property at 256 also expressed a willingness to work with the city to reach a mutually beneficial resolution to the dilemma at hand.
There are 65 homes along this stretch of Encinitas, 43 of which were built before 1940 (in fact all 43 save one were built before 1931). Many of these homes are Victorian cottages or Craftsman bungalows, and most are of the smaller variety. Nine have already received landmark status from the city, attesting to the rich architectural character of the neighborhood.
