    The City has completed selective reconnaissance level surveys for several neighborhoods in the City: Bolton, Sunset, and Willamette.  The surveys are considered "selective" since they looked at properties over 45 years of age.  A property is generally only able to be determined to be "historic" if it is over 50 years of age.
