Bulletin Board: L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference: Growing Up with Character

Submitted by the Los Angeles Conservancy

Worried about teardowns and other types of incompatible development in your older or historic neighborhood? Wondering how to protect the great qualities that drew you there in the first place? If so, you’re certainly not alone. People all over Los Angeles are facing similar issues, and we’re here to help.

Join the L.A. Conservancy and the L.A. Department of City Planning’s Office of Historic Resources for a day-long forum on neighborhood conservation, including presentations by experts in the field, interactive workshops, and dialogue with community stakeholders.

The theme of this year’s conference is community character, from tree-lined streets of historic homes, to clusters of older duplexes and bungalow courts, to “background buildings” in industrial neighborhoods.

The event is open to anyone interested in neighborhood conservation and will examine a range of topics, including mansionization, historic and conservation districts, community advocacy, and the City’s re:code LA initiative. The day will kick off with a performance by Ambassador of Americana, Charles Phoenix!
