The City of Grass Valley encourages the protection, preservation, and enhancement of its heritage and architecturally significant resources.

In order to effectively assess the relative value of buildings and structures in the historic 1872 Townsite, a priority rating system with four categories was created:

  • Priority 1 rating can be applied to properties that retain superb integrity, are one-of-kind or unique examples
  • Priority 2 rating can be applied to properties that retain good integrity with some loss of historic fabric, but continue to convey their period of significance and architectural style or sub-style
  • Priority 3 rating may be applied to properties that have lost a substantial amount of integrity either through remodeling, additions, or other types of alterations
  • Priority 4 rating may be applied to properties that generally lack integrity or are modern (post 1950s) infill. It is extremely unlikely that these properties may be recoverable and elevated to a higher rating.
