Leimert Park HPOZ Story Preview Part 1/3

February 17, 2009

Ramp-smaller
It’s coming…my story on Leimert Park, Historic Preservation Overlay Zones and why it’ll be a while before the area has a chance to argue its case before the Office of Historic Resources (part of the L.A. Department of City Planning). HPOZs must be visually cohesive and have some architectural significance. The white and green sign in front of this house says “YES HPOZ.”

Today and tomorrow you’ll see houses that might work within the city’s HPOZ guidelines and, on Wednesday, a — shall we say — “nonconformist” property that would most likely not be considered a contributing feature in an HPOZ.

Wait for it…
