The Los Angeles HPOZ Program
Los Angeles’ Historic Preservation Overlay Zone ordinance, passed in 1979, allows a neighborhood to petition the city for designation as a historic district. If the designation is approved, any significant changes to structures within the zone require special approval from a panel made up of residents, a Realtor, a contractor and an architect.
Today, Los Angeles has 30 designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zones (HPOZs) covering a variety of neighborhoods of 25,000 properties and another 15 neighborhoods that are in the process of applying for this designation.
