Transportation Impact and Mitigation Case Study: The Sam and Alfreda Maloof Story

The Maloof project is part of an interdisciplinary research project to develop and implement a program that will incorporate transportation, land-use, air quality, and energy management within the inland empire region. The larger program is titled Regional Intersection of Transportation/Land-Use/Air Quality/Energy and will involve the cooperation of UCI Department of Planning, Policy & Design (UCI-PPD), CSUSB Lenard Center for Transportation Research and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) as well as other experts in the field. The Maloof project is a case study that is designed to research the process by which different agencies can more effectively mitigate the impact of transportation construction projects. The objective is to produce a report that will present recommendations for greater interagency cooperation through the environmental impact and mitigation portion of transportation projects. The entire project will cover the scope of the entire academic year and will culminate in a report, a conference paper, a possible magazine article in Preservation magazine, and a public event at the Maloof foundation and a chapter in a book in a policy oriented anthology. The goal is to document the process via the Maloof case study by which different agencies such as: Caltrans, San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), State Historical Preservation Offices (SHPO) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation in cooperation with private individuals can effectively work together to achieve the preservation of historical and cultural resources in the most efficient and mutually satisfactory way possible. Methods for research will include attaining and reading government archival documents from Caltrans, researching internal memos, minutes from meetings, and related documents from SANBAG, researching case law history regarding preservation and landscape preservation, reviewing academic literature on preservation, and extensive interviews with the people involved in the Maloof case.
