Proposed Amendments to the Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) Ordinance

June 10th, 2016

You are receiving this email to inform you that the Department of City Planning has initiated amendments to the Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) Ordinance to improve the HPOZ program. Attached you will find a description of the proposed changes to the HPOZ Ordinance and the proposed ordinance amendments. I also encourage you to attend one of two informational Open Houses and a Public Hearings.

The City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning will hold the first combined Informational Open House and Public Hearing on Thursday, July 7th, at the Will and Ariel Durant Library, at 7140 W. Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90046. The Informational Open House will be held at 6:00 p.m. and the official Public Hearing will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Two days later, on Saturday, July 9th, at 10:00 a.m. a second combined Informational Open House and Public Hearing will be held at the Council District 10 Field Office, at 1819 S. Western Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90006. The Informational Open House will be held at 10:00 a.m. and the official Public Hearing will begin at 11:00 a.m.

The formal Public Hearing is your chance to comment on the record regarding the proposed HPOZ amendments. During the Public Hearing, a hearing officer will record public testimony and written correspondence on the proposed changes. No decision on the amendments will be made at this meeting; however, comments will be taken into consideration in the final recommendation to the City Planning Commission.

The Department of City Planning’s Office of Historic Resources has released these draft amendments, (attached below) for review and public comment through August 11th. To comment, please email Blair Smith at blair.smith@lacity.org
