Integrity, not just for people

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:09 am

So as the GSA wrote in their last letter to the SHPO

The National Register Bulletin is quite clear about the integrity assessment part, I also found this link to the Register Bulletin on evaluating integrity:

The 1996 Page and Turnbull nomination did just that, they evaluated the integrity within their narrative:

Even with as many words as was thrown in the application the Carmen Reid/AAPS nomination did not:

1996 application:

Carmen Reid/AAPS application:

1996 Page and Turnbull:

Carmen Reid/AAPS:

1996 Page and Turnbull:

2021 Page and Turnbull:

Carmen Reid/AAPS:

That none of this stood out to SHPO or AAPS when they were reviewing the document is shameful. I mean, Chris Buckley of AAPS has plenty of time to photoshop in huge Borg cubes on to Park Street frontages to demonstrate how out of place a grey rectangle with the words “New building” on it would look on Park Street but apparently not enough time to stop Carmen Reid from adding AAPS’s name on this error-riddled nomination.


  1. That application is shameful and riddled with so many errors. How it got all the way up to a state hearing is bewildering, and really casts the SHPO staff in a poor light for their apparent lack of fact-checking. I hope AAPS makes an effort to publicly denounce this – for years they have been a respectable organization dedicated to preserving Alameda’s victorians, but the last few months they are allowing themselves to be hijacked by an individual who is tarnishing their integrity.

  2. They are vulgarian hacks.

  3. Has the AAPS been hijacked by the same folks as the national GOP? šŸ˜‰ How sad…
